About the Provider

Description: Our Philosophy. Learning, curiosity, and motivation are natural and ongoing processes in children’s growth. We encourage children to be aware of the environment and appreciate the things around them. Our staff creates an atmosphere wherein these qualities are nurtured and encouraged.

Our philosophy is framed by the lens that each child is a seed. Just as the sun provides warmth, the rain provides water, and the soil provides the nutrients to feed and nurture each seed, thereby realizing and cultivating the seed into its potential bloom, we believe we must provide the nourishing and responsive environment to cultivate fulfillment of each child’s individual qualities and abilities, and then marvel as they bloom!

All My Children Daycare and Nursery School is a nursery and preschool based on various philosophies and principles.These philosophies encourage learning conditions that enhance thinking and experiential learning, tailoring the environment to accommodate children’s needs, and implementing a curriculum that is guided by children’s interests, in an eco-friendly way. We believe that children, their families, and society all benefit from a high-quality, early childhood program in conjunction with an eco-friendly surrounding, and that there is a critical link between a child’s early experiences and later successes in life. It is our goal to provide all of our children with the best possible education delivered by motivated, inspirational teachers who have been specially trained to teach an integrated curriculum.

Our education is a response to the needs of children today, hoping to root their learning in an authentic experience and scaffolding their growth through a higher order thinking processes.

This will render self-awareness and a heightened sensitivity to being citizens in a culturally diverse world. Particularly, as the world is extended beyond natural borders to virtual ones, self-awareness must be linked to promoting leadership qualities directed towards effective judgment of how to use the gift of one’s natural freedom to prepare for a better tomorrow.

This environment will be created with materials and resources that are open ended, with teachers and staff who are continuously growing as learners through professional development, and a life-long appreciation of learning.

Our warm and eco-friendly early childhood education centers offer green building details such as abundant daylight , toxic-free paints and finishes, and Energy-Star appliances. Our toys, furnishings, and supplies have been explored and considered to bring the best in learning and earth-friendly materials. Eco-friendly diapering? Absolutely! Organic, locally-sourced food? Indeed! Green cleaning practices and an eco-friendly curriculum? 100%! We wouldn’t have it any other way!

Through an interdisciplinary curriculum, focusing on developmentally appropriate practices and world consciousness to build skills and concepts as well as continuously maintaining a close partnership with parents and community, the teachers will inspire, support, love and nurture each of ALL MY CHILDREN.

I have used this provider for less than 6 months

Very horrible and unprofessional daycare. There has been a few mishaps in the school that has had me on edge but i have reached a final straw with this place.
1: When my son got into a mishap with another child they would not disclose who the child was not arrange a 5min meeting with the parents if necessary.
2: on 2 occasions i picked my son up and he has on buggies diapers (which he is allergic to) I was not provided a note informing me he was low on diapers yet and anytime I was I brought new diapers in for him. It made me worry that they may possibly be sharing my sons diapers.
3: My son caught Coxsackie (aka hand foot and mouth disease) the school had sent an email informing parents of this issue and when my son caught it I wanted to know more about it so I called to ask what were their methods were of preventing this from spreading in the school. Jody informed me that they cleaned and sterilized the toys everyday with Seventh Generation,however when I spoke to one of the teachers (Amanda) to see if we can make sure the kids do not share any toys their excuse was theres too many kids in the class and they can't promise that, aside from finding out that the toys are not cleaned everyday and that they only have one cleaning lady it would be too much for her to clean the toys in all 5 classes among her regular duties. She mentioned how her daughter caught it 3 times in that school which was not reassuring at all and I'm pretty sure that not sterilizing the toys everyday was a major reason as to why coxsackie was spreading in the school for as long as it was (which it still currently is!) so Jody was not being honest with me.
4: I received a letter one day stating that they needed my sons medical and asthma action plan, which i had already given to them upon starting, 3 months after him being there, threatening that if they don't receive it he will no longer be able to attend. I speak with Priscilla and let her know that I brought it in to them and she's stating if i had given it to anyone else but her it definitely most likely was misplaced almost implying that the rest of her staff aren’t competent enough to put the information in the right hands, funny thing is I gave it to Priscilla. I brought the copies to the school Priscilla claims to have called me and apologized because she had found the paperwork. I said i never received a call and she kind of rolled her eyes and shrugged her shoulders, I later checked my voicemail and there was NOTHING from her at all.
5:for a past couple of months my son has had a biting problem and they as well as I have been trying to get to the root of the problem to stop him from biting. I don't know why my son was doing this as parents we sometimes cannot pinpoint what the cause is. So yesterday I received a call at 1130 (mind you i just dropped my son off at 830) being informed that my son had bitten 4 children that day. Now of course i am extremely upset with my son however I'm a bit upset with the staff with 3 teachers in 1 classroom how could my son have bitten 4 kids in 3 hrs. I go to the school and pick him up, Jody tells me that she believes that Amir should be closely shadowed and I agree I felt that that could assist him, Now i go back to his classroom and Amanda asks what did Jody think we should do and i told her and she again states that theres too many kids in the class for us to do that we are assigned 5 kids each and there are 15 kids in the class they would be out of compliance if they were to shadow my son which I felt was excuses. The next day I bring him Jody transitions my son to the 2yr and up which he should be in by now and then tells me if my son has 1 more incident he will be removed, no suspension just straight to expulsion for my 2 yr old.
I removed my child from the school myself.
All of this has happened in a span of 4mos my son has been in this school only since February and it is now June. So good luck with this day care I would NOT RECOMMEND this place to ANYONE.
