Our facilities are operated under secular practices, therefore our teachings and activities are reflective of the seasons, events, and cultural celebrations. In order for a child to make choices, he/she must be aware of options. Knowledge renders a child with information to achieve. Knowledge is an important key to learning for achievement of the BEST outcomes.
Getting to Know You
Upon entry into our program the office manager, family advocate or social worker will provide programmatic information. Within sixty (60) days, a director will formally meet and welcome the new family and respond to any questions and/or concerns. The parents will be made aware of our Open Door Policy which welcomes parents to address a concern with our Director, Tynnetta Beyah at any time.

Parents are encouraged to attend parent meetings, which include discussions on child development, common child problems, etc. These meetings will give you an excellent opportunity to meet and talk with some staff members, to give them the benefit of your good ideas, and to get to know other parents who are using the center’s service. We hope that all parents will participate in these meetings. Open House is our favorite parent meeting which is usually held at the beginning of October of each new school year.
Our staff will be happy to talk with you regarding your child and any special problems, which you may have. In order to be sure that they will be free to give you undivided attention, please make an appointment. Twice a year, we will conduct a parent-teacher conference to discuss your child’s development. A parent can speak with a director at anytime.
We recognize the birthdays of all children. If you wish to arrange a special party for your child, we ask that you check with your child’s teacher at least two days in advance of the birthday, and you must supply all items for the party including paper plates, cups, napkins, candles and decorations.
