Phoenix parents can use quality rating systems to find childcare and preschool programs they can trust

Fortunately for parents in Phoenix, a quality rating system is in place to help families find childcare programs that are safe and promote age appropriate learning environments. Valley Child Care & Learning Center programs voluntarily participate in First Things First’s program, Quality First. This partnership assures parents that our programs go beyond Arizona licensing standards with implementations that provide children with the skills necessary for success upon graduation from our preschool programs. The Quality First program shares what we value most in our programs, the health, safety and education of infant, toddler and preschool age children in Phoenix. Their input also includes furthering staff training, state of the art classroom enhancements, as well as resources and support for families.

When you enroll with us, you’ll become a part of our family

Security is of the upmost importance to us. When you enter our programs to tour or enroll you can expect to be greeted by someone at the front desk. We will take every opportunity to introduce your family to our entire front end staff ensuring familiarity between our team and your family! It is encouraged that you continue to enter our building with your ID as we may ask to view it at pick up until you are well familiar with our programs. Majority of our programs have transitioned to a locked front door occompanied with a keypad, upon enrollment we will provide your family with a personal code to come in and out of the building. If you’re just stopping by for a tour, feel free to ring the doorbell and we will be right out to greet you!

A closed circuit monitoring system is available throughout the building. We encourage all families to take advantage of our viewing screen at the front desk and observe their child in their classroom. For enhance security, this monitoring system is not available to view online. 

We will make every effort to get to know you, and any individuals you choose to include as drop off and pick up options on your child’s registration.

As part of the commitment we’ve made to your family,

we are proud to introduce to you a staff that is not only professional but devoted. This means you can expect to see familiar faces at the front desk and within your child’s classroom.

So many important developmental milestones are achieved before children are even a year old, one of the most exciting is communication! From babbling to first words, learning basic signs language and everything in between, there are so many ways we can support little ones working on these essential skills!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here are some ideas you can try this weekend!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1️⃣ - Read books together! Research has shown again and again that infants who are read to regularly develop a more extensive vocabulary that they will retain continually.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2️⃣ - Discourage baby talk. This can be a hard habit to break, but it is well worth it! The more children are talked to with appropriate, expressive language the easier it is for them to learn to in turn communicate effectively.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3️⃣ - Recognize and explore emotions - this means being specific to the situation that your child is experiencing. Talk about the difference between being happy and excited, or mad and frustrated.

We encourage all families in our programs to bring a family picture for your child's classroom. Even our littlest ones enjoy being able to wake up, roll over and smile at the pictures they see! 📸 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
**For safety reasons, infants are always put to sleep on their back in our programs and as part of appropriate development, learn to roll over when they are ready! #infantsleepsafety

A regular, structured schedule is maintained throughout each day and includes letting children choose their own spaces for play and learning. Our curriculum is designed to be threaded through each area of the classroom, which you’ll see demonstrated when touring. Lesson plans are always available for you to view or snap a picture of, so you can continue with learning experiences at home!

We know that language skills are essential to all the developmental milestones our preschoolers are working towards achieving. As these toddlers are rolling a toy back and forth, they have a chance to practice taking turns while observing and using the many new social cues they are developing. Some of these cues may include choosing a friend to roll the toy to or clapping in excitement when it's their turn! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Supporting preschoolers learning age-appropriate social-emotional skills is something we know is essential to their success. As children learn these skills we see them develop healthy relationships with their peers as well as the ability to recognize and process their own emotions productively. In our preschool programs, we see these skills begin to blossom and grow! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

You never know what you may find when you observe a home living center in a preschool classroom. Sometimes you stumble upon little ones making pretend pancakes for breakfast, someone pretending to mop the floor or maybe even a sweet scene like this. 💛

So many important things happen when preschoolers play with play dough! Squishing, pulling, poking and mixing helps to refine the motor skills they need to manipulate scissors, pencils and other tools. Planning designs and collaborating with peers provides opportunities for language development and communication! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
