From the Director:
Our curriculum is differentiated to meet each child's needs. We are an outside the box program, believing that every student can progress at their own speed.
The teachers attend professional development through Houston Gifted Co-op program. Through this training, we understand that teaching, using a gifted format will allow all students to expand their knowledge base.
Our mission is for each child to leave here with a good self esteem. Knowing that they can take on the challenges that this world has to offer. That leaning can not only be fun, but that it can take you anywhere you want to go.
All children are unique. Some are independent and some are dependent. Some will cry for longer periods of time, and some won't cry at all.
Separation anxiety is a normal a behavior for most children. Not knowing the people in the school and not knowing the routine can be very scary. Even if a child has been to the school before, there will be days a child might not feel well, may not have slept though the night or just might want mom.
The best thing you can do is to reassure your child he or she will have an wonderful day and that you will be back that afternoon to get them. Do not hang around to see if they have quit crying. If they know you are there, they will cry longer and harder.
My staff will work patiently with your child to develop a bond with them. This will make the separtation time less stressfull for everyone.
