"Greater Visions is designed to provide all children from all walks of life, with quality, loving care, as well as peace of mind for parents while they are apart. The main objective will be through a strong commitment to fostering both intellectual and social-emotional development. Equally important to these, are the development of self-esteem, identity, competence, impulse control, autonomy (sense of self), and relationships with other people.
To promote learning, curriculum is based on a unifying theme, which serves to help children to focus on specific concepts and provides an environment that will encourage each child to fulfill his or her potential. The cognitively oriented center is based on the premise that children are active learners who construct their own knowledge from meaningful, hands-on experiences. The environment is designed to be stimulating but orderly, where children can independently choose from a wide variety of interesting materials. The classroom is divided into different areas including, but not limited to, housekeeping, block area, quiet and group areas, and art.
Our Kindergarten curriculum is based on the criteria needed in order for the child to enter public school upon completion of our program. Included in this curriculum is literacy, math skills, writing skills, science and activities such as music, art and physical activity to help promote a well-balanced learning environment.
Our School Age Program is meant to be a fun enrichment program for children age 6-10. This program provides a variety of materials for the children to choose from whether it be choosing from our library, playing Sega or working on the computer, socializing, crafts, board games, card games or home work. There is plenty of space for kids to chill out and just relax or play a rousing game of mouse trap, build a rocket ship, play with babies, Lego's, etc! There is also a big emphasis on physical out door activity on a daily basis.
Our open door policy lets families come at any time to see their children and or talk to the director if there is any concern.
Greater Visions is a Non Profit Organization.
