About the Provider

Description: We believe each child is unique as an individual. We offer support to each child as s/he develops emotionally, socially, intellectually and physically in a warm and positive environment. We provide developmentally appropriate activities that focus on the process of learning and help children enjoy successful experiences. We encourage not just learning, but the love of learning.

We believe in providing a physical environment that is safe, clean, healthy and oriented to children. Classrooms are arranged to offer challenging play in learning centers at a variety of developmental levels. Our learning centers allows children the opportunity to explore, to experience, to create and more importantly … to succeed!

We believe the strength or our program is directly related to the dedication of our teaching staff. We support our teachers with training, resources and the freedom to create unique learning experiences for children. We provide various opportunities for our teachers to share ideas and grow professionally. Our teachers create a caring and nurturing atmosphere and foster each child’s creativity and positive self-image.

We believe in using positive guidance techniques to discipline children. We establish consistence, age-appropriate limits to help children function in their world. Our program is designed to develop independence and responsibility in children. We work together to strengthen each child’s own cultural identity as well as teach him/her to respect others who may be different.

We believe parents are the most important adults in a child’s life. We work together to create mutual respect between parents and teachers for the benefit of the child. We encourage daily communication between parents and our staff. Our doors are always open to parents.

Gingerbread values all of the people involved in our center: the children in our care, their parents and our staff. We work hard every day to earn the trust placed in us and to be the best provider of early childhood education in the community.
