About the Provider

Description: The Childspace PHILOSOPHY is that children learn by experience. We believe that children must first feel emotionally and physically secure to be able to explore and learn from their environment. We are concerned with all aspects of children’s growth: social, emotional, cognitive and physical. We plan our program at each development level to provide opportunities for children to try new things both individually and in groups, make new friends and have fun. Activities are provided in the classrooms, outdoors, in the gym and on trips. Our toys are kept on open shelves for easy accessibility to children. In group activities, we recognize that each child is an individual and we encourage children to express themselves according to their own personalities through art, music, circle time, body movement, games, imaginary play, block play, book time and cooking. We set limitations primarily with regard to the safety of all children. We try to teach children to respect each other’s person as well as their feelings and introduce children to the diversity found in society. We attempt to structure the classroom and activities in a way, which allows choice and flexibility within the security of a consistent schedule and pattern of expectations. We encourage parents to get involved in our program, make suggestions and ask questions.

I have 4 children and they have attended Childspace since 4 months of age. I live the environment, some of the teachers are super loving and caring while others not so much. My problems with the center include stale snacks that they give to the children, the younger staff dress in appropriate attire( boobs and buttocks exposed). My son who was in the afterschool program was mesmerized by his afterschool teacher's boobs and buttock hanging out of her clothing during the summer. There were also rumors about a certain teacher who was hitting the children, and dispite several children leaving the program because of claims that they were hit, this woman still works there. The director Eddie Appel comes off sweet at first but is very RACIST. So if your looking into this center avoid Ms. Appel and the afterschool program. Ask about the rumors as far at hitting is concerened. Other than that most of the teachers are wonderful !
