As an entire program, we will maintain an overall teacher/child ratio of approximately 5 to 1, staffing infants at 3 babies to each teacher and staffing our oldest groups at 9 children to each teacher. We are fortunate to have a facility that has been designed especially for this young age group, allowing us to assign children to very small groups for a portion of the day, while providing ample opportunity in our beautiful common space for children to spend time together participating in joint activities.
Every study ever conducted on early childcare validates the critical impact of the bonding process on intellectual and emotional development. Above all, we value the vital importance of consistency in your child’s life. Recognizing that all teachers will take time away from Regent Park for various reasons, we make certain that your child is comfortable and familiar with multiple teachers that are assigned to his or her age group, and we make every effort to consult one another before taking time off so that we may rearrange our schedules rather than rely heavily on the hiring of substitute teachers.
We are lucky to have amazing teachers and staff that have been with us for many years. Take a moment and get to know them!our teachers
Regent Park Early Childhood Development Center is dedicated to providing the kind of attentive care that does not demand that children accomplish tasks when WE are ready, but rather when THEY are ready. We are here to encourage, to anticipate, to stimulate, and to recognize readiness. We are here to instill a sense of pride and curiosity in children for their own mastery of their world, creating a lifelong joy in taking on whatever comes next.
The program includes everything from learning to listen to learning to cooperate, to learning to climb safely. Every week, a preschool music specialist joins us in a structured music experience presented in two sessions, one specifically designed for toddlers and one for older children.
At Regent Park Early Childhood Development Center, we implement the teaching strategies presented in “The Creative Curriculum for Infants, Toddlers and Twos” for our younger population and “The Creative Curriculum for Preschool” for our older population. This state adopted curriculum offers a comprehensive, developmentally appropriate roadmap to working with young children and their families. The goals and objectives for children’s learning include all areas of development: social/emotional, physical, cognitive, and language. When planning our daily schedule, and our individual goals, we adhere to the principles and information provided in this book of well researched work.
For more information, you may go to, www.teachingstrategies.com, which will detail the many aspects of this invaluable guide. The common thread running through each area of curriculum, however, is the emphasis on individual levels of readiness.
