About Nana's House Child Care Center, Inc.
Mission Statement & School Philosophy
It is our goal at Nana’s House Child Care Center, Inc. to make each child feel safe and secure, while exposing them to appropriate developmental skills and building a positive self-concept. We encourage children to take risks and learn from their mistakes in both academic and social settings. We use a positive behavior approach, which consists of specific praise,
modeling appropriate behaviors, and providing children with acceptable choices. We teach children to develop behavior habits and attitudes that will allow them to interact well with others in school and throughout life. At Nana’s House Child Care Center, Inc. we strive to prepare our children for the next step they will be taking- whether it be moving from the infant room to the toddler room, or leaving our program to move onto elementary school.
Nana’s House Child Care Center, Inc. uses a thematic curriculum that is child centered, aligning to NYS Early Learning Guidelines through playful learning. Experiences are differentiated based on the abilities and interests of children in the classrooms. Teachers provide children with opportunities to explore their multiple intelligences and develop in the areas of language, emergent literacy, mathematics, science, technology, gross motor, fine motor, creative expression, art, music, health, safety, social emotional, and social studies. We provide children with the tools they need to be successful and encourage them to use these tools in a way that works best for them. Throughout every child’s experience at Nana’s House, it is our goal that families feel supported and nurtured in their child rearing efforts.
