All of our teachers must take the 45 hour entry level childcare course before working at The Children’s Center. They have background checks and drug testing before their first day of work. Teachers must have 28 hours of continuing education each year.
The Children’s Center\’s entrance is locked at all times. Parents receive a code which allows them entrance. Within our classrooms we create safe environments in which to learn and play.
The Children’s Center believes that every child can learn if given the proper opportunity, encouragement, and stimulating environment. Together, we provide experiences to enrich and enhance each child’s cognitive, language, social, emotional, physical, and creative development. We are committed to providing opportunities for interaction with children of both similar and different cultural backgrounds and social lifestyles. We believe that in order for children to reach their full potential, they need a creative, happy, nurturing, and safe environment, where they obtain care, guidance, and support. Children need love and caring balance with structure, boundaries, and guidance/discipline to develop physically, socially, emotionally, and cognitively.
The Children’s Center hires a cleaning agency to clean each night. Teachers keep classrooms picked up after projects and spills.
We have an open door policy. Parents may visit at any time.
We have caretakers who have been with the Children’s Center 4 to 20 years.
Within classrooms, teachers are assigned a particular small group of children. They can then provide the nurturing and caring for each child needs for personal growth.
When you visit the center, you will see children interacting with each other in a happy, caring environment. Our curriculum is based on age and the interest of the children.
We provide breakfast, lunch, dinner, and three snacks for children who are attending at the times meals are served. We have a full kitchen and cafeteria. Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) guidelines are followed in the meal planning and preparations.
