- Martin Luther King, Jr.
“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education."
TO REACH THEIR HIGHEST POTENTIAL
Heavenly Kids Center for Learning utilizes Creative Curriculum to meet the developmental needs of our children ages 6 weeks – 5 years old.
Our school age program utilizes the TSGold's school age curriculum, "Building the Primary Classroom."
Once enrolled, teachers begin
a portfolio for each child that will capture their journey here. Observations, assessments and lots of memorable moments will be kept.
The curriculum models are aligned with Ohio Department of Education’s birth – 5 years early learning standards and K-12 content standards.
Parents can access our lesson plans, individual plans and photo gallery through Teaching Strategies Gold, our online assessment tool used by our teachers in their classrooms.
Some of the requirements to obtain a five-star rating are:
Lower teacher to child ratio.
The administrators and teachers complete more than 20 hours of specialized training every two years.
The program builds relationships with families.
The administrators and teachers have higher education qualifications.
Teachers use a written plan of activities that covers all areas of development.
The program values input from families and the community.
FOR MORE INFORMATION
6 Weeks to 2 1/2 Years
Although your child is away from you during the day, we maintain portfolios for each child so that you know your little one is not only being cared for but is growing developmentally during their time with us.
Our program is designed for individual development at the child's own pace.
Our low teacher/child ratios
allow the caregivers to provide security, identity, exploration and continuity of care for a journey of searching and learning.
As your child approaches their "terrific twos," they will develop an understanding and appreciation for their uniqueness in the world.
Our teachers will help them develop strategies to manage their emotions and behaviors as they begin to understand and establish peer relationships.
2 1/2 - 3 YEARS
By the time your child reaches 2 1/2 years old, their ability to process information, interact with others and care for themselves quickly increases. We offer an environment specifically designed to help sharpen these skills.
Our teachers also work to solidify potty training, following simple directions and small tasks which are vital skills needed for our preschool program. They will become more independent and develop strategies to manage their emotions and behaviors.
Upon completing the transitional program, your child will enter our preschool program equipped to be successful in this new venture of learning. Higher educated teachers will continue your little one’s fundamental journey through letter recognition and writing practice.
3 - 5 YEARS
Heavenly Kids is in partnership with Child Development Council's Head Start program. These slots are on a first come-first served basis and are offered to parents who meet income guidelines.
