A Happy Hollow Preschool and Childcare brings your child over 8 years of licensed preschool and childcare experience. We are committed to providing the highest quality preschool and childcare. Our low ratio will give your child the one on one attention necessary for quality learning. We offer a nationally accredited preschool program. Additional programs in Hooked on Phonics and Hooked on Math are offered for the child needing an additional challenge. We work with our elementary school teachers to ensure our kids are prepared for kindergarten.
Our Preschool hours are 8 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. with a very reasonable rate - $180 per month for 2 days a week and can add days depending on children's individual needs. We take drop-in care upon availability.
There is room for 2 more full-time children with care hours from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Our full-time rate is $165 per wk. Please visit our website to check out our daily activities on our Preschool Blog. Healthy meals are provided and in accordance with the Colorado child and adult food program.
Philosophy and Goals
We believe each child is a unique individual and that children are happy and secure when they have plenty of opportunities to succeed each day. Success breeds self confidence, and self confident children approach learning as fun and actively search for information and solutions to problems. We believe in a developmental approach to learning: an approach where the child's individuality is treasured and his/her independence encouraged.
We want to provide an environment that encourages each child to grow creatively, spiritually, emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. We want to make it easy for each child to:
1. Develop security and independence in a world outside the home
2. Make friends and learn how to handle social situations
3. Help each develop a good self image
4. Stimulate the natural curiosity in each child to question, explore, and experiment
5. Help each child develop his/her cognitive skills
6. Provide each child with many experiences of being loved, understood, accepted, and successful: to find out that he/she is a person valued for their unique being----a child of God.
Educators and psychologists agree that between the years of birth and five, children develop, learn , and grow more than they ever will again during any other time in their lives. To make the most of these years, your child's preschool experience has been carefully planned.
