The area school districts have outstanding things to say about our children (parents tell us the wonderful things they say during assessments, or transitions to Kindergarten). We have many parents who are teachers in our program, and they see the amazing benefit of a strong academic program in their children, also. Our program is a very traditional education focus; our children play and have fun with our program, but we are not a play focused center.
Our focus is on positive communication. Kids are kids and throughout the day; just like adults; children have moments of frustration, but all of that is normal. When parents come to pick up, our program is not focused on any difficulties throughout the day, unless they see an obvious change in the child’s behavior, we tell them the positives–“they had a great day” or “they had fun during art time,” etc. If a child is experiencing difficulties in our program, our management team addresses it with the parent and works together to help the parent, child and teaching staff. If an incident happens at LN; a child bumps their head, or gets a scratch, etc, our management also reaches out to the parent to let them know what happened–ensuring the parent gets all of the information.
