6 parents took the survey TAKE THE SURVEY

Little People’s Playhouse is a child care center which includes a preschool program in our curriculum. We hope to help the children prepare for entering Kindergarten. We will introduce the alphabet, numbers, shapes, colors, name writing, and phone numbers, to the children. We do a lot of art projects where the children develop painting, gluing, and cutting skills. We play circle games that will introduce children to group activities that they will experience in school. We want the children to have a positive feeling about themselves, their development, and skills.

We will provide nutritious meals for the children including breakfast, and afternoon snacks. Lunch will be provided by parents.

Handling Separation: From the Director

Children seem to quickly adapt once their parents have dropped them off and left. The parents are told that they can call when they get to work to see how their child is doing.
