Learning through Community

communityIn a Child’s Path is not your average child care home. We are a professional certified family care facility, which is very different from a center. We have limited group sizes that allow us to create an intimate feeling. We have consistent caregivers that your child will see on a daily basis so they are familiar and comfortable with them. We undergo annual childcare training and have high standards for our caregivers, making sure they are educated in early childhood. We are a neighborhood facility that provides an authentic learning environment.

We promote a strong sense of community at school and we feel this is very important–that is why we sit at the table to eat our meals together. We always start our morning out with a few songs and books in English and/or Spanish. Children thrive on this consistency and they’ve always enjoyed starting their day off at school with an intimate group activity. It is a delight to watch the friendships that develop throughout the year and to see the anticipation on each child’s face when we read our favorite books together.

Families are important to us; to foster community within our program we host events throughout the school year. You would be surprised by how much you have in common! Our fishing trip, pumpkin patch, sign language classes and school community are great opportunities for our families to meet and develop friendships with each other. We also walk each year in the Cystic Fibrosis Walk in May and the Buddy Walk in September.

We feel that children should grow up in communities, in neighborhoods, with room to explore nature and see the grass, the sky and the elements. We go outside everyday rain or shine. We have a yard that children can play in, a sandbox made for digging and many bikes, balls and other toys to help with small and large motor skills. With 16 children per day, we stay small so that children can grow. At In a Child’s Path, we care when you’re not there.
