From the Director:
We believe in promoting life long learning and getting the child to be an active part of thier learning environment. With small groups and individual attention we mold each child into a well rounded student ready for the world.
All our teachers spend one on one time with each student to help facilatate their growth and maximize their potential. Children are also paired together to work in teams to help improve the social aspect of learning.
Playhouse Childcare Centerâ€™s philosophy is to promote a safe and fun learning environment where each child can grow at his or her own pace. We will strive to help the needs of all the childrenâ€™s aspects including, but not limited to, social, emotional, physical, and intellectual. We want all children to have a positive self-concept, and enjoy learning. Our program is designed to promote learning and discovery at the childâ€™s individual level. We recognize the importance of learning through play and will incorporate it at many levels. Playhouse Childcare Center uses a Reggio Emilia inspired curriculum in a combination with the preschool learning foundations presented by the California Department of Education. At Playhouse Childcare Center we will be using the California Desired Results Developmental Profile-Revised (DRDPR) as a teacher observation tool that is being aligned with the California Department of Education foundations. The DRDP-R gives teachers a means to observe childrenâ€™s learning along a continuum of developmental levels. The DRDP-R is a revised document checklist that tracks each childâ€™s level of a particular developmental area. The DRDP-R is to be used within the each childâ€™s first 60 days to provide a baseline. Then every six months thereafter. At Playhouse Childcare Center we will do DRDP every September and May to track the growth of each child and help provide information during parent-teacher conferences. At Playhouse Childcare Center we strive to help parents understand their own childâ€™s learning. By collecting artwork, pictures, and writing samples we can see the childâ€™s progress. This is also a helpful tool in teacher-parent conferences.
