We are pleased to invite you and your little ones to Yelena 's Educational Place. Our mission is to build an educational childcare program where the needs and interests of children come first. A place where children will receive the individual attention and care that they need to grow and learn at this important stage of their lives; where children feel safe and secure and comfortable enough to build strong friendships, and where parents can take comfort in knowing that their children are receiving the highest level of care. We offer full time/part time childcare for 15 months old-5 years olds. At Yelena 's Educational Place, we encourage our students to learn about the world around them, and the community they live in. All children benefit from exposure to the world at large, as long as the exposure and experience are in line with their developmental ability to engage in an activity. For younger children, this might mean a walk to the Fire Station or to the mailbox to mail their friend a letter or a buggy ride around the neighborhood provides much opportunity for language development as their teacher speaks to them about the things that they see as they go. At our program we have interest learning areas or centers: blocks/cars, dramatic play, sensory, art, music and movement, manipulatives and outdoors. The Creative Curriculum that we employ at our program is one that actively involves parents in their child's learning process by providing tools that extend the lessons of the day into the home at night.
Nationally recognized for being forward thinking, comprehensive, and rigorously researched, The Creative Curriculum is designed to help us/teachers prepare and implement content-rich, developmentally appropriate programs for children of any age. This curriculum uniquely balances teacher-planned and child-initiated learning, while emphasizing responsiveness to each child's strengths, interests, needs and learning styles in every developmental area.
Our Main Goals to support children to be: Creative, Inquisitive, Flexible, Critical thinkers, Purposeful and reflective, Social learners.
Yelena's Educational Place is a safe, nurturing, loving and creative place where Education , Play and Care go hand in hand.
