Our Educators – High Standards Make the Difference

Looking for teachers with a passion for education? Look no further. Our dedicated child care professionals create engaging learning environments to bring out your child’s best.

To ensure staff quality, we developed a customized assessment to select highly competent teachers and care staff. This validated pre-hiring assessment uniquely identifies high-quality candidates. To our knowledge, no competitors use such a tool.

We check references and conduct thorough background checks based on state and/or local licensing requirements. This includes fingerprinting and appropriate criminal background checks, as well as verification of educational credentials. Candidates who will transport children undergo a thorough driving history check and annual checks.

We do this all to protect the most valuable part of our school: your child. In addition, we provide ongoing training and educational assistance. All our educators:

  • Meet the certification standards set by each state
  • Complete extensive training for comprehensive insight on child-care and child-development issues before they enter a classroom
  • Receive specific training on our standards and child care curriculum
  • Continually enhance their skills and knowledge in regard to curricula for math and science, as well as communication with families.

An Ideal Environment For Learning

One key to learning is a well-planned environment. That’s why our classrooms are specifically designed to provide a warm, intimate, and secure space for children to learn, explore, and develop at their own pace.

For instance, infants get plenty of floor space to develop gross-motor skills, while the school-age spaces encourage social interaction and individual exploration.

Clean Spaces

Cleanliness is vital, so we take significant precautions to prevent the spread of germs.

  • In the infant areas, all teachers and staff wear booties to limit outside germs.
  • All spaces that children come in contact with are regularly disinfected.
  • All the children’s toys are disinfected on a regular basis.

Safety & Security – Our Top Priority

Providing a safe, secure environment is our No. 1 priority. It’s as simple as that. We make every effort to keep your child safe, happy, and healthy.

Every location has procedures and standards that are strictly enforced, including:

  • Secure lobby and classrooms. Every entrance is equipped with an electronic lock. All parents must know the PIN number, while all visitors are greeted at the door to sign in and be assisted.
  • Visitor precautions. Photo ID is required from all unfamiliar visitors. A visitor listed as authorized to pick up a child must still show photo ID if they are not familiar to the school director and/or assistant director.
  • Equipment safety. One of our many precautions is “non-tippable,” child-sized tables. Regular monitoring ensures equipment is in good working order.

Nutrition – Healthy Choices for Growing Kids

Menus include a variety of foods which meet daily nutritional needs and satisfy licensing requirements. When substitutions are necessary, we’ll maintain the nutritional content of the overall menu and post updates so you know what’s been served.

Meals are served family style and may include your child assisting in areas such as:

  • Table setting
  • Food serving
  • Cleaning up

View the sample weekly menu that offers examples of the healthy options we offer for breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack.

We encourage children to sample new foods and taste what’s being served; however, we cannot require children to eat or punish them if they choose not to eat all foods served. Please speak with your school director if you have specific concerns because of:

  • Religious reasons
  • Special dietary needs
  • Allergies or other considerations
