Importance of Childcare

Emotional and Social Development

Our high-quality learning centers have developed programs that nurture trusting relationships with their peers, teachers, and parents. Our teachers are trained to develop emotional skills, encourage engagement, and promote curiosity.

 

Together with the goals of the parents, teachers strive to give the children the emotional connections they need to succeed later in life.

Cognitive and

Language Skills

Between the ages of 3 and 5, a child's vocabulary grows from about 900 words to 2,500 words and sentences become more complex.

 

When it comes to cognitive skills, we engage children in hands-on activities that challenge their minds and invoke questions. A child's mind is a sponge during their pre-k learning, that's why thought-producing programs are designed to take advantage of this early learning period.

Math and Reading Skills

Children are curious and want the skills, such as math and reading, that prepare them for the next phase of educational development.

 

To prepare children for kindergarten, our teachers offer a wide range of games and activities that promote pre-k matching and reading skills.

Preparation for Future Schooling

Many parents look to preschool to prepare their children for kindergarten and elementary school. Our high-quality centers give children the tools they'll need to succeed at the next level. The difference lies in the highly trained staff that takes an active role in giving each individual child the skills needed to advance.

 

Most importantly, each child is put on their own path to success. If they are advancing at a faster rate than others they are introduced to more advanced learning programs. It's all about the child and learning experiences are tailored to individual needs

 

We believe that collaboration with parents is critical in determining the best learning path for each child. Updated reports on activities and progress are readily available for parent review. When parents are active and engaged in the process, the child's learning experience is greatly enhanced

Environment Based on Structure, Curiosity & Fun

It's good for young children to be introduced to a structured environment that helps them make friends and play well with others. Providing structure doesn't mean teachers are constantly correcting children. Teachers patiently and consistently coach the children, encouraging appropriate behaviors and outcomes

 

Having thoughtful structure at an early learning center is largely invisible to the children. It does, however, give them a framework of organized spaces and schedules that promote socializing and learning. ​

To nurture a child's curiosity, early learning center teachers use the child's own interests and ideas to create activities that foster curiosity
