Benefits of Child Care

 Benefits for children
Children in our care reap the benefits of a safe, happy and healthy environment. Children are given the opportunity to be actively involved in the learning process and to experience activities and materials that foster the development of the whole child. Each child will be respected as a unique individual that God created. While attending, your child will encounter a nurturing, loving staff that will form secure relationships with you and your child. Each child will leave prepared for kindergarten and ready to have a successful school experience.
 

Benefits for the family
Parents who enroll their children have the comfort of knowing that their children are in a safe, stimulating and loving environment. Families become part of a support system of caring teachers who form a partnership in working to enhance the development of each child. We offer and open door policy and over all reliability of service.
 

Involving families in our center is our goal. We encourage families to work as an aide with the children or to support literacy in our classroom by reading to their child's class. It is vital that children hear different voices, stories and languages to excel in literacy.
 

We actively prepare children for kindergarten. Each day is a new day to learn and explore. We learn letters and numbers while playing with Play-Doh, blocks, puzzles, games and books. They learn life skills in pretend play and in cooperating with each other. They learn to socialize with children of various ages and adults outside their families.
 

A variety of outside resources are available for your child. Some of these include speech, occupational and physical therapy. Behavior specialists and intensive home and classroom support are also available when needed.

Tadpoles
Communicating with families is a key component to quality care. We utilize Tadpoles, a program that allows parents to sign their child in and out using a unique pin. Teachers are able to send pictures and notes to parents through email, of their child's day. Parents can view their child's portfolio online to see their progress toward their individual and group goals.
​Another benefit of Tadpoles is added security through photo ID of authorized adults able to pick up the child. Tadpoles also allows us to quickly send text messages to all parents in the center to notify them of weather related closings and reminders of events such as picture day. 

  

Our Philosophy
 

It is our goal to provide a safe loving environment for each child. It is important to us to meet the needs of each individual child and their family. We want to nurture a love for learning by providing age appropriate curriculums and base our classrooms on the whole child. Each of our learning centers will allow the child to explore his or her own interests and abilities. We want to provide school readiness skill that will prepare each child for kindergarten.
 

We want to spend quality time with each child, knowing that we are the primary caregiver during the day, and taking that very seriously. We will let each child know that they are loved and valued and listen to what they have to say. We will show them affection through hugs and words of positive affirmation. We are a family centered facility and will always keep the lines of communication open with the home.
 

Families are strongly encouraged to participate openly in their child's care and their feedback is considered vital to what we are doing. We want to maintain a friendly, open and cooperative relationship with families.
 

We want to provide a quality service with high standards for our community, realizing that children are a gift from God and should be taken care of and treated in that manner.
