Child Care Info (FAQ)

Q. What makes your child care facility different from all of the others?
A. There are so many programs to choose from in the area. We offer a great deal of knowledge and expertise in the field of child development coupled with teachers who are committed to caring for children on an individual basis. We make the time to know each child and their interests and base our program on their ever changing needs.

Q. Will my child be watching television while at preschool or child care?
A. No. We use our time during the day to exercise our bodies and our minds and engage in social situations and activities.

Q. What is your group size and teacher/child ratio?
A. We keep our group sizes small, to ensure the success of our “Mission”. Our ratios are as follows: Infant/Toddler program – 1:4 and Preschool program – 1:7.

Q. Will the staff comfort and hug my child if they are sad?
A. Yes. We believe that young children need to feel safe, loved and respected in order to get the most out of their experiences. Our group sizes remain small enough to allow us the time to provide this personal attention while your children are young and really need it.

Q. Does my child have to be toilet trained to attend your Preschool Program?
A. No. We work with families and children on this milestone when the children are ready. We do, however, find that many children become interested in training once they are around their peers.

Q. What kind of guidance/discipline will my child receive while at the child care or preschool?
A. We strive to create a positive environment for children while they are in our care. We believe that with clear boundaries and consistent follow through from the teachers children prefer to make good choices.
