Our goal is to provide love and support during your first years of parenthood. In the Peapod Patch, we strive for an appropriate infant High Scope curriculum that advances your child’s growth and development. We are here as a support to our families to insure a smooth transition from your home to our Pee Wee Patch home away from home.
As Early Childhood Professionals, we will be available to provide you with information regarding the ongoing growth and development of your child through one-on one conversation each day and through age-appropriate evaluations, ASQ Screenings and COR Assessments during parent/teacher conferences and daily interactions with staff and parents..
We have an open door policy and encourage you to stop in at any time to visit. We understand how difficult it is to leave your child on a day to day basis and we want you to feel welcome at any time.
At the time of your tour, we will be giving you a “Welcome Packet” where you will find informational forms that are needed to be completed and returned by the start of your child's first day of attendance. We ask for this information to help teachers to get to know your child on a more personal level and to build a secure knowledge of their needs and schedule.
In the Infant Rooms, each child is treated as an individual with their own schedule. We will follow that schedule on a day to day basis until the child's needs begin to change. We will then begin discussing appropriate changes to meet their growing needs.
We use the ASQ as a screening Tool upon enrollment and use the High Scope Curriculum and COR Assessment tool to monitor the growth of each child, including our infants.
We feel that to have a successful program, communication is the key to everyone’s happiness. If at any time you have any questions, comments and or concerns, please know that we are always here for you and will do our best to ensure your happiness. So, to make your busy life easier, we welcome all phone calls and email messages throughout the day. We are never too busy to reassure parents of their child’s well-being. We hope your experience here will be as memorable and as long lasting to you as it is to us.
