New Discoveries Playschool, Your Family Partner

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

Dear Parents,

New Discoveries Playschool is more than a traditional daycare program.  New Discoveries is a family success community. 

What does that mean?

It means that we see ourselves as having a long-term support partnership with families.  To us, the first step is recognizing that like it or not, parents need to work. The second step; we know that one of the most difficult decisions parents face is determining who will care for their child while they work. We know how easy it is to become overwhelmed and frustrated by the questions, concerns, hopes and expectations that come with making this decision.

Questions like: 

  • Do you care for infants?
  • Can I stop by and visit during the day?

Concerns including:

  • Will working be worth it?
  • Can a flexible schedule be accommodated?

Hopes such as:

  • The person who cares for my child will be nurturing and trustworthy.
  • There will be engaging activities each day. 

Expectations including:

  • Finding a safe environment that is clean and inviting.
  • Professionals with clear background checks and ongoing professional training in Early Childhood Education.

The third step in being a family success community is three fold. 1.) knowing the questions 2.) knowing the answers and 3.) taking the time to design a program dedicated to your family's needs.

Our answers to parent's queries:

  • Yes, we have a program dedicated to infants.  We have a 3:1 ratio which means your baby will receive one-on-one, nurturing care
  • Yes, you can stop by and visit during the day. Call us 1st and we will coordinate with you. We will make sure, for example, that your child is not napping so that you can spend time together, rather than missing a chance to connect. Many moms, over the years, have planned their post-maternity work schedule to be able to nurse their infants during the day. We have a quiet place set aside just for you

  • Yes, working will be worth it.  Studies show that families that invest in early childhood education see an improvement in their child's long-term success. Children who receive good early education earn, on average, $36,000.00 more per year than children who do not.  Not only that, with our reasonable rateswe save you $15,000.00 over 5 years for one child and $38,000.00 for two childrenover what you would spend in many other programs. 
  • Yes, we have a flexible schedule system. Our system sets us apart from centers who only charge full-time and part-time tuition.

  • Yes, the person who cares for your child will be nurturing and trustworthy. Our hiring process is designed to identify the characteristics that your child needs in a teacher.

  • Yes, there will be engaging activities each day. Our teachers write their own curriculum and our administrative staff review it each and collaborate with teachers each week to ensure the quality of activities.

  • Yes, it is our goal to provide a safe environment that is clean and inviting. In fact, one of the most frequent comments we receive from parents is "we love how clean your school is."

  • Yes, a Clear background check is a requirement for all staff members at New Discoveries Playschool. This year alone our staff have completed over 53 hours of ongoing professional training in Early Childhood Education. That means our staff spend at least 1 hour per week dedicated to improving their knowledge as educators.

In short, our goal is to be the best partner you could wish to have.
