During our extended Preschool care times, we often integrate our 3 – 5 year old’s for inside and outside playtime.  

Is there space for my child?

We hope so! Enrollment is always on-going and a child may enter any time during the year. Contact us to check availability.  

Is there a transition period for my child? How do you handle a child who might have separation anxiety?

Whether your child has been in a program before or not, starting at a new childcare program may be scary to some children. The first few days are what we call the “phase-in” period. During this, your child will become familiar with our routines and practices. While it is tempting, we ask parents to not sneak out. Instead, give a big hug or kiss and say “goodbye” and let them know you will be back to pick them up at the end of the day. Our teachers and director are always available to help a child who is having a difficult transition.

Do you accommodate allergies and/or dietary restrictions?

It is our goal to keep each child with a food allergy safe and to honor identified food restrictions to best of our ability.  The teachers will post all food allergies in the classroom in clear view.  In order to best meet the children’s special dietary needs, it is essential that the center staff and parents work closely together.  Parents should discuss it with the Director and the child’s teachers upon enrollment.  Parents must submit written documentation with specific guidelines for addressing each special type of dietary need and food allergy. 

How frequently do you sanitized the classroom and toys?

We sanitize our classroom surfaces multiple times daily. We follow all health department requirements and we deep clean our toys weekly.  

What is our education philosophy?

You will hear us talk a lot about “learning through play”. Play is the defining feature of human development: the impulse is hardwired into us and can’t be suppressed. 

That’s why a play-based approach involves both child-initiated and teacher-supported learning. The teacher encourages children’s learning and inquiry through interactions that aim to stretch their thinking to higher levels.

Children learn best through first-hand experiences—play motivates, stimulates and supports children in their development of skills, concepts, language acquisition, communication skills, and concentration. During play, children use all of their senses, must convey their thoughts and emotions, explore their environment, and connect what they already know with new knowledge, skills and attitudes.
