CURRENT PARENTS

FAMILY INVOLVEMENT: Unique Little Hands Child Development Center builds positive relationships with our families by being familiar with their unique characteristics, strengths and issues important to each of them. To develop partnerships with the families we create a welcoming environment and opportunities for involvement.

 

We schedule visit days to meet the family members and create a smooth transition for the enrolled child. Our center has an open-door policy. Parents and family members are welcomed at all times.

 

ASSESSING YOUR CHILD'S PROGRESS: All age groups are assessed formally and informally to ensure that the teachers plan their curriculum goals and activities to support individualized learning.

 

Our teachers observe, record and document children’s development, participation and learning throughout the year.

 

Our center uses variety of methods such as observations, checklists, rating scales, and individually administered tests. The assessment results are used to benefit children by informing sound decisions about children, teaching, and program improvement. When assessments identify concerns, appropriate follow-up, referral or other intervention is used.


 

WAYS WE COMMUNICATE WITH FAMILIES:

In addition to conferences and assessments, there are many ways we keep you knowledgeable about what is happening in your child’s classroom:

  • Daily or weekly bulletins

  • Telephone calls

  • Emails

  • Daily sheets

  • Notices

  • Journals

 

 

DISCIPLINE POLICY: Children who are having difficulty for any reason will be re-directed to another activity. 

 

Behavior that is likely to result in harm to the child, others, property, or seriously disrupts group interaction, the child may be separated briefly from the group. The child will be taken up to the office to sit with an administrator where he/she can relax and calm down, where they are not influenced by peers. 

 

Once the child has gained enough self-control and calmed down, he/she may then rejoin the group.  The child will always be in an area where he/she is in full view of, and can be supervised and supported by a staff member. Interaction between the child and a staff member will take place immediately following the separation to guide the child toward appropriate group behavior.

 

Methods of discipline that may be humiliating or frightening to the child are strictly prohibited!
