The Children’s Center was established to provide childcare to young children in a nurturing and stimulating environment. Our team of early childhood specialists will support your child in developing at his or her own pace through exploration and collaborative learning experiences. We work in partnership with parents/guardians to develop a curriculum which contributes to the physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development of your child. The Children’s Center welcomes children from 4 weeks to 6 years in age. All children are unique individuals whose experiences, abilities, and needs are valued and respected. The Children’s Center encourages each child to participate and experience success. Children of ALL abilities are welcome!
Each teacher develops a lesson plan balancing the needs of the individual students in the classroom with appropriate developmental expectations. For some students this may require incorporation of accommodations within the classroom or within the activity to promote the student’s success.
It is our belief that in order to obtain a complete understanding of the child’s abilities, they must be observed often over the course of time. Our teachers are trained in a standardized assessment tool which allows for data to be collected while children play in their natural environment. An assessment report is created and shared with parents. Together, teachers and parents plan goals which are then incorporated into the curriculum and lesson plans.
The Children’s Center believes that an ongoing parent-professional dialogue is needed to develop, implement, monitor, and modify activities. The parent/guardian is always welcomed and encouraged to visit the Center. Parents/guardians receive daily notes, progress reports, and newsletters. Parent/teacher conferences allow for discussion regarding the child’s skill level, next steps, and any family needs which may require attention. Families can schedule a conference at any time to discuss their child’s progress and goals.
