Why Does 5 Star Quality Child Care Matter?
The early years of life matter because early experiences affect how the brain is built. As a child’s brain grows, the quality of the experiences that a child has creates either a sturdy or fragile foundation for all the development and behavior that follow. High quality experiences promote children’s social, emotional, physical, communication, and cognitive development. Parents want to make educated choices for their families and lay the foundation for later success for their children.
The Division of Child Development and Early Education determines the rated license each center receives. It is based on Compliance, Quality Child Care Program Standards and Staff Education.
Infants & Toddler
Believe it or not, children begin learning at birth. It is for this reason that we provide a curriculum specifically designed for infants and their individual needs. We give specialized care and attention that will help develop the foundations for language and learning
Toddlers & Twos
Toddlers are very inquisitive. They love to touch, watch and explore. Our toddler program provides a wide variety of activities which help develop fine and gross motor skills, sensory motor skills, communication and socialization skills. The two year old program expands these activities and helps develop self-help skills and toilet training.
Your child is approaching an exciting milestone and the adventure of a lifetime! Our fun and challenging Preschool Pre-kindergarten program is designed specifically to promote his readiness for learning, assurance in social situation and a mastery of many fine and gross motor skills, all of which will benefit him when he moves into the school arena. Our skilled and nurturing staff will offer a variety of both independent and cooperative learning opportunities as well as provide for generous outdoor playtime to ensure his future academic success.
After School Care
Kindergarten – 5th Grade
We provide an environment of choices for after school care. Based on the premise that learning happens every day, all day, our program has been designed to meet the growing educational needs of children. Not only will your child get to spend time with friends, enjoying activities that are relevant to school age interests, they will also be provided with homework help and skills enhancement. Daily outside activities help the child to unwind after a day at school.
