Positive Parenting is a year-round program serving children from 12 months and walking (by the first day of enrollment) to pre-kindergarten age. Children are admitted regardless of race, creed, color, sex, disability, national origin, or religion.
The age of your child, along with available space and staff-to-child ratios required by state licensing authorities, will determine your child’s placement in a “family”. Two of our Family Rooms will have a maximum of 14 children each, ages 2 to 3 years with a “lead” teacher and two assistant teachers. The third room for ages 2 to 3 years old, has a maximum of 10 children with a lead teacher and an assistant teacher. Ages 12 months to 23 months will be placed in their own Family Room with a maximum of 9 children and 1 head teacher and 2 assistant teachers, depending on numbers. The 4 - 5 year old children will be in the preschool family with a maximum of 20 children and 1 licensed preschool teacher and 2 assistant teachers. The program also employs floating teachers and assistants who assist any room as needed.
Your child will participate with their “family” in all of the small group activities, called “family time,” throughout the day. This includes calendar time, focus time, slow-down time, and rest time. This “family” setting allows the children to develop a sense of security that stems from knowing their teachers and friends.
