Commitment to help build a solid foundation: It is our commitment to help children build the foundational abilities that would serve them well for their lifetime. The early years of life are crucial to a child’s self-confidence, esteem, brain development and learning potential. As educators of young children, we recognize the huge role we play in development of child’s brain, their behaviors, and their skills.
Commitment to hire quality staff: We are committed to hire staff that has appreciation for children, positive attitude, and love of teaching – it is this orientation that excites them to work in the childcare profession. Our staff meets or exceeds all licensing requirements; they must pass a background check, attend ongoing professional training, and are CPR and first aid certified.
Commitment to safe and secure environment: Our centers have secure front entrance with keypad access. We conduct regular fire, tornado, and evacuation drills with children. Parental permission is obtained prior to field trips and research/experimental activities. Centers are protected by sprinkler system and fire monitoring program. Center staff is trained to look out for safety hazards and to correct them immediately.
Commitment to clean and healthy environment: Cleanliness is an important component of our staff activity design. All toys and equipment are sanitized at least weekly. We follow strict guidelines for food preparation and hand washing methods.
Commitment to provide positive and loving attention: Our behavior guidance policy is designed to reflect our commitment to build strong foundational abilities. First and foremost children are given positive and loving attention. Our staff looks for appropriate behavior and reinforces it with praise and encouragement and uses redirection when a child’s behavior requires changes. We focus on teaching social skills such as honesty, respect for others, cooperation and sharing.
Commitment to keep parents informed: We communicate and interact with you so that together we see how the children are doing at our center and how they are doing beyond our center. Our teachers provide you information on your child’s day through daily communication as well as pre-planned conferences.
