About Nana's House Child Care Center, Inc.
The mission of Nana’s house is to offer high quality child-care with focuses on educational curriculum, child development fun and creativity in a safe and nurturing environment. The philosophy of a child care center largely influences the types of activities, the curriculum and the kind of care that will be present in the center. Therefore, it is imperative that the community become familiar with the philosophy behind the operation of our center in order to better understand the focus of the program.
Our administrative and staff members at Nana’s House complete a vigorous training program designed so caregivers will focus on the development of the whole child. In order to accomplish this, we look at the cognitive, physical, emotional and social needs of each child. Children develop from one stage to another. Because of this we provide our children with opportunities that challenge them and foster their progression from one stage to the next.
Since children construct knowledge through experience, in our program we provide children a variety of activities that allows for success and encourages advancement in all areas of development. Children need an environment that not only meets their basic needs to help them grow, but a structured program, to meet the physical, emotional and developmental needs of each child.
Therefore, we individualize our program to meet each child’s specific growth and needs. In addition, our staff is continually observed and reviewed in these areas by their supervisors. We put much effort into working closely with parents so as to create an environment that is most beneficial to the child.
