Welcome to the Pond!
I want to first and foremost thank you for choosing us as your child care provider. We want to welcome you and your family to the pond. Here we strongly believe in family and community connections and are excited to have you join our family. Choosing a childcare provider is an extremely tough task and it comes with many questions, concerns and emotions. As you embark on this new journey in your family’s life we hope to make it a bit easier with being available to answer any questions you may have along with providing this handbook as a guide to who we are, what we are about and what and how we do.
As you embark on this new journey there are a few things you need to know!
At Lilly’s Learning Pad, we believe in the value and uniqueness of each child we serve. Our childcare experience is designed to promote each child’s own individual social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development.
As caregivers and educators, our mission is to provide a safe and developmentally appropriate learning environment, which fosters a child’s natural desire to explore, discover, create, and become a lifelong learner.
Here at Lilly’s Learning Pad… we believe that a tailored educational experience in early childhood can have a major impact on the educational career of any child! This is why we strive to be the impact that your little firefly needs to be reminded that we have to let the light within us shine brightly in order to attract great things in our lives and change the world. However, only under the right conditions will your little one shine and this is why here at Lilly’s Learning Pad we provide an experience from the time your child is enrolled that balances Fun, education, school readiness, exploration, discovery, social-emotional development, nurturing environments, safety, engagement, stimulation, cultural awareness, physical, emotional and cognitive support, as well as equal opportunity resources no matter the age, stage of development, ability or financial status of the family until the time they graduate and beyond.
