Parents' Day Out

Infants
We have two infant classrooms divided by age in months. We have low child-to-teacher ratios with a max of 6 babies in the younger classroom and 7 babies in the older classroom cared for by 2 teachers. The teachers follow each child’s feeding and nap schedule and work toward a more structured schedule as they get older. All of our teachers use Creative Curriculum and Baby Sign Language. They also engage children in age-appropriate play, art projects, music with Ms. Sandy and outside playtime with rides in the Bye Bye Buggy.

Toddlers

We have two toddler classrooms with a max of 8 in the younger classroom and 10 in the older classroom with two teachers in each room. Our ratios for all our classrooms are well under what Licensing allows. The children are able to explore and interact with peers in a safe and fun environment. These rooms also use Creative Curriculum and they have scheduled music and outside playtime every day. We offer Spanish, Science and Stretch-N-Grow on specific days.

Teachers

All of our teachers are required to attend 25 hours of continuing education every year and they are all First Aid and CPR certified. The teachers have all completed our Ministry Safe program, a background check and FBI fingerprinting. Our teachers love working with children and we are proud of our reputation as a program with a low staff turnover rate.
