I hear ... I forget
I see ... I remember
I do ... I understand
Children learn through concrete experiences.
It is my life’s work to meet the Physical, Social, Educational, Emotional and Developmental needs of the children in my care.
To facilitate this process I work every day to provide them with the tools and experiences to explore their world freely. Freedom of exploration gives a child the ability to experience and understand their world as they learn through all of their senses.
If you are consistent in your interactions with children they feel safe. Children, whom live in a world that is predictable, learn to trust and have the freedom to explore and develop.
It is important to teach children how to take responsibility for their own actions. Logical consequences and constancy are keys to developing a child’s sense of responsibility.
Children who are engaged in developmentally age appropriate activities are content and thrive.
Remember, when you speak to a child with positive respectful words they will learn to use these words with others. Children become what they see and hear.
Most importantly, each child is unique. A child who is given every opportunity to explore and learn will develop into their own extraordinary individual.
At Stephanie’s Family Child Care & Preschool we care for a maximum of 12 children, only 4 of whom are under the age of two years. Our ratio varies between 1:6 and 1:4 when all children are present. Our higher ratios are limited to nap time, and at the end of the day as children are leaving for the day.
There is no age requirement to be Potty Trained when enrolled in our Child Care and Preschool Program. Your child can begin Preschool regardless of their ability to use the bathroom. We work with every child on self-help skills to prepare them to be independent in the bathroom when their bodies are ready.
We go above and beyond the minimum California State Licensing Child Care Regulations for required staff ratios. All staff is CPR and First Aid Certified, have completed Mandated Reporter Training and are up to date on required immunizations (Flu, Pertussis, Measles). We provide a safe environment, free of hazards where children are well supervised and cared for. We have yearly visits from Community Care Licensing and are free of any deficiencies.
