General School Mission

The educational philosophy of The Redeemer's Child Care Center is based on meeting the developmental needs of the child through meaningful learning and hands on activities.We strive to keep abreast of current theories and practices through staff education and training. It is our intentions to prepare each child for their future education.

A Typical Day

We open at 7:00 am. Children who arrive early have the option of open centers or quite reading time. As teachers arrive children are separated into their classrooms where they prepare for breakfast. Breakfast is from 8:30 until 9:00am. After breakfast students follow a daily schedule that includes working in learning centers, circle time, and a time for music and dance. They have outside play time. Lunch is at 11:30, followed by rest time. Snack is at 2:30. After snack children have time in open centers. Also after snack there is a second opportunity for outside activity time. Children are picked up by parents through out the afternoon. We close at 6:00pm.
