Our Infant Program
Our infant environment is designed to be warm, predictable and responsive to the varying needs of each infant. We maintain a 1:3, teacher to child ratio. There are opportunities daily for one-on-one interactions with a primary care giver, group interactions with a focus on art and music and alone times to observe their environment. Infant needs and schedules are flexible by nature. Our trained care giving staff promote individual care patterns and work closely with parents to have a continuance of care most like home. Daily records of sleeping, eating and activities are maintained to support this continuance of care.
Our Toddler Program
Our toddler program consists of three individual classrooms, with four children and one teacher, interacting as a group of 12. This style of care allows for one-on-one time with their primary teacher, while also promoting success in a wide range of developmental skills. Our program is flexible for the exploring toddler, yet our teachers provide consistent and comfortable care that fosters their emotional needs. We work with parents to provide a positive and successful toilet-training experience.
Our Preschool Program
This program is designed to offer learning opportunities in a fun, rewarding and positive setting, while also preparing the children for the expectations of kindergarten. The team of two teachers, offer activities that focus on early reading, writing and math skills by building on the physical, language, social and emotional skills that are the foundation of successful early learning. This program is where the CACS Head Start partnership is offered to children age 3 through 5.
Before and After School Program
As a leader in quality education for young children, Beginnings Child Care includes before and after school care for kindergarten half day students and care on days when school is not in session. The program’s focus is to provide children ages 5-10 an enriched environment in which to spend their early mornings as they prepare for their school day and a place to call their own in the afternoon. We provide caring, trained professionals who will interact, mentor and provide tutorial and homework assistance. The children will have opportunities for quiet and active expression, computer access, physical activities using our gymnasium and outdoor play areas. Meals are provided with morning and afternoon snack options on school days and a full lunch on days of no school.
