The Early Education and Care program at Penfield Children’s Center provides a nurturing child care environment where teachers and families work together to prepare children for school by promoting positive growth and development. The program uses a child-centered, exploratory approach to early learning, and a curriculum that focuses on social, emotional, cognitive, physical, behavioral, and language development.
Penfield’s Early Education and Care program is inclusive; meaning children without special needs and children with special needs learn and play together. Committed, licensed and certified teachers and childcare staff use a combination of experience and knowledge to bring out the best in every child in their care. Penfield has one of only a few local programs that is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC); and our program has been awarded a 5-star rating from Youngstar, Wisconsin’s Childcare Rating Program.
Based on our philosophy of holistic care, Penfield offers a comprehensive program for all families seeking high quality early education and childcare. Children with special needs may receive speech, physical and occupational therapy based on their needs, and an on-site nursing staff monitors the health of all children in the Center. Other program highlights include:
- Week day programs from 7:00am to 5:30pm, for children ages 5 weeks to 6 years
- An indoor playground and fenced outdoor playground
- Cheerful classroom environment
