Mission and philosophy


 


  The mission of Wonderland Daycare and learning Center is to enrich the quality of family life by providing peace of mind to parents and by enhancing the life experiences of children in our care. The philosophy of Wonderland Daycare and Learning Center is based on a set of strongly held beliefs:


 


  We believe that each child is a unique individual. We are sensitive to a child’s social, emotional, intellectual, and physical needs. We provide developmentally appropriate programs that focus on the process of learning and help children enjoy successful experiences.  We encourage not just learning but also the love of learning.


 


  We believe in providing a physical environment that is safe, clean, healthy, and oriented to children. Classrooms are arranged to offer challenging play and learning choices at a range of developmental levels. Activity areas allow children the opportunity to explore, to experience, and most important to succeed. 


 


  We believe that the strength of our program is in the dedication of our teaching staff. We support our teachers with training, resources, and freedom to create a unique learning experience for children. We provide many opportunities for teachers to share ideas and grow professionally. Our teachers create a caring and nurturing atmosphere and foster each child’s creatively and positively self-image.


 


  We believe in positive methods of discipline. We establish consistent, age-appropriate limits to help children function in their world.  Our programs are designed to develop in children a sense of independence and responsibility. We desire to strengthen each child’s own cultural identity, while instilling a respect for others who might be different.


 


  We believe parents are the most significant adults in a child’s life. We strive to create mutual respect between parents and teachers: a partnership for the benefits of the child. We encourage daily communication between parents and center staff. Our doors are open to parents at all times.


 


  Wonderland Daycare and Learning Center is an organization that values people: the children in our care, their parents, and our employees.  We strive each day to be the best provider of early childhood educational service in every community we serve.

Education

 


  Our programs are based on each child’s social, emotional, intellectual and physical developmental needs. We believe children are happy and secure when they have plenty of opportunities to succeed each day. Success breeds self-confidence, self-confident children approach learning as fun and they actively search for information and solution to problems. As a result, they develop into well rounded, capable adults. Much of what we do with children is designed to facilitate the development of self-confidence.


  Each child is assigned to his/her classroom depending upon age and developmental level. A specific curriculum has been designed for each age group to accurately match the child’s developmental level. Detailed information about the day’s activities is posted each day in the classroom kid's report.

Staff Training:


  We believe that the teaching team is the cornerstone for implementing our philosophy.  Members of the team are carefully selected, trained, and evaluated. Wonderland Daycare and Learning Center has carefully identified the skills and capabilities teachers must have to meet the child care and early education needs of children. Following a careful selection process, each staff member receives ongoing training. The Center Director and Supervisor regularly observe the teachers and provide feedback to staff to ensure the capability of each employee. Teachers are provided with CDCA and Child Day Aware resources to maintain updated teaching skills.


  We support the professional development of our staff.  To assist staff in this we are enrolled in the Missouri Accreditation Self-Study Workshop. Each staff member


Classroom Environment:


  We believe our center environment must be clean, safe, and well planned.  Our administrator and teaching staff are responsible for ensuring this.


The Director and staff place children in groups by age and developmental level. We provide activities and learning experiences specially designed for child’s needs, abilities, and

developmental level. Your child will feel safe and secure in our clean, comfortable classrooms that are designed for learning. Our child-sized furniture, equipment, toilets, and sinks help your child develop self-reliance in taking care of his/ her personal needs. Our learning center offer block play, dramatic play, reading, quiet play, science, art, and manipulative for exploration plus problem solving. Your child will be enriched by an abundance of materials and equipment such as blocks, dolls, computer, cd/ recorder players, tape recorders, games, and books. Children will work and play together in small groups in the learning centers around their class room. In this environment your child can become involved in meaningful, self-directed activities


Outdoor:


Our playground structures have been specially selected for the total development of children.  Your child will spend delightful hours engaged in climbing, sliding, running, and playing with others. Under the watchful supervision of our skilled staff your child will be safe, secure, and happy with friends the same age. Each room’s daily schedule includes at least one outdoor period. State licensing requires that we include outdoor time each day when the weather permits.


Accreditation:


Wonderland Daycare and Learning Center supports the accreditation principles of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). NAEYC is the most comprehensive accrediting body overseeing child care, preschool, and before/after programs. This independent group of early childhood specialists and educators set standards of excellence in the areas of learning program, classroom environment, children activities, staff qualifications, health and safety.


We’re proud that Wonderland Daycare and Learning Center is striving to earn Accreditation. It’s part of our commitment to providing the highest quality child care available.

Your :


       Child’s First Weeks at Wonderland Daycare and Learning Center



  The first few weeks in any new environment can produce anxiety for your child. The Director and teachers are sensitive to these feelings. Our staff is trained to be alert and aware of your child’s reaction to this new environment and will make every effort to help your child adjust as easily as possible.


These are some things you can do as a parent to help ease the adjustment period:


·         Take time to get to know the teachers and staff involved in the care of your child. Since your feelings may be indirectly communicated to your child, it is important that you feel confident in the staff’s abilities and comfortable about bringing your child to the center.


 


·         If possible, plan to talk with your child positively about the center and the things he/she will be doing there.


 


·         If you anticipate a problem in separation, discuss this with the staff and decide on a procedure to follow in advance. We suggest that after the necessary signing-in and exchange of greetings, you say to your child, “Good- bye.  I will pick you up later.  I know you will have a good day,” and then leave the building. This method may seem abrupt, but it will minimize separation anxiety for your child. This is preferred to “sneaking out,” because your child is well informed and has the opportunity to say good-bye to you.

·         Bring a stuffed toy or blanket. This may help the child in bridging the gap from the familiar to the unfamiliar.


 


·         During the first weeks, you may feel some apprehension after leaving your child. This is a perfectly natural response – we know how very important your child’s well-being is to you. We encourage you to communicate through kid's report to center during the day to find out how your child is doing. The Center Director and staff are eager to keep you informed.


 


·         A re-adjustment may occur after a long weekend or vacation. Your continuing positive attitude will facilitate any such transitions.


 General

To ensure the safety of all children, we ask that you honor our restrictions on bringing food into the center.


                                                                                                              7

  Children should come dressed for getting messy! We recommend washable, comfortable play clothes that are easy for the child to manage. Tennis shoes or other soft-soled shoes are the safest, whereas sandals or hard-heeled boots can lead to injures toes. Thongs, sandals, and boots are discouraged.


Personal Belongings


 The toys and educational materials at Wonderland Daycare and Learning Center are shared by all children as part of learning experience. The center has an ample supply of equipment and materials.


  Wonderland cannot assume responsibilities for loss or damage to any personal possession's children bring into the center.  It is distressing to children to misplace or lose belongings and sometimes difficult for the teacher to identify the owner. Therefore, children are encouraged to leave toys, food, money, and etc at home. Please help your child understand why it is not wise to bring toys or other objects that they may not wish to share with the group. However, it is acceptable for your child to bring a blanket or animal soft toy for rest time.


Lost and Found


  If your child is missing anything, please inquire at the center as soon as possible. It is much easier to return a lost item if it is labeled with the child’s name.


Hiring Staff to Baby Sit

On occasion, parents ask our center staff to baby-sit.  Wonderland does not authorize or take responsibilities for any services that employees may provide outside of Wonderland Daycare premises or programs.

 How will facility maintain 6ft /social distancing with young children?

a. if possible, teacher will be assigned a small group of children which only they will work with daily

b. Facility will limit the mixing of children by:

Staggering playground times

Keeping groups separate for special activities such as art, music, science and exercising.

At naptime facility will ensure children's cot and or cribs are spaced out as much as possible, ideally 6 feet apart.


Wonderland will have X's placed in designed areas 6ft apart. Parents will be asked to stand on the X's 6ft apart as we sign each family in and out, one by one. You will enter through door ONE and exit out of door TWO on the front porch. You will be greeted by a faculty member who will check the temperature of both you and your child(ren). If your temperature

or that of your child doesn't fall in the guidelines of the CDCA you will be denied entry. You and your children 2+ MUST wear a mask at all times.


Parents will be required to purchase a mask for their child/children to wear while attending facility. (Ages group required to wear mask is 2 years and up). This will lower the spread of COVID19.


The facility will follow its regular schedule for cleaning and disinfecting by:

Routinely cleaning, sanitize, and disinfect surfaces, objects that are frequently touched, especially toys and games. This includes cleaning objects/ surfaces not ordinarily cleaned daily such as doorknobs, light switches, classroom sink handles, countertops, desks, chairs and etc.


What are RULES if someone gets sick?

Require sick children and staff to stay home.

a. communicates to parents the importance of keeping children home when they are sick.

b. communicates to staff the importance of being vigilant for symptoms and staying in touch with facility management if or when they start to feel sick.

c. establishes procedures to ensure children and staff who come to the child care facility sick or become sick while at facility are sent home as soon as possible.

d. keeps sick children and staff separate from well children and staff until they can be sent home.


Sick staff members should not return to work until they have met the criteria to discontinue home isolation. Plan to have an isolation room or area (such as cot in a corner of the classroom) that can be used to isolate a sick child.


Be ready to follow CDC guidelines on how to disinfect facility if someone is sick. if a sick child has been isolated in facility, we will clean and disinfect area after child has been sent home.  If COVID19 is confirmed in a child or staff member: The Facility will close immediately to quarantine all infected areas.  Parents will be notified. After _24_hours the ENTIRE building will be sanitized, cleaned and disinfected.

How can facility plan for staff absences?


Develop plans to cover classes in the event of increased staff absences. Coordinate with other local child care and reach out to substitutes to determine their anticipated availability if regular staff members need to stay home if they or their family members are sick. Recommend that individuals at higher risk for severe illness from COVID19 (older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions) consult with their medical provider to assess their risk and to determine if they should stay home, if there is an outbreak in their community.


  The Director will determine if a child is too ill to remain at the center. If your child becomes ill while attending the center, we will call you. If your child is sent home because of illness, he/she must be free of any above symptoms for at 24 hours before returning to the center. Please return with doctor excuse.



Biting


  Experts in the field of child development tell us that biting occurs primarily as a result of a child’s inability to communicate.  Many young children are not very verbal. Children may become frustrated by a new experience, such as another child taking away their toy, or suddenly being around many other children, and may bite as a response.



When a child does bite, the following procedures will occur:


  The child receiving the bite will be comforted and the bite area cleaned to prevent infection. An incident report will be filled out and the child’s parent notified.


  The biting child will be redirected to appropriate activities. His / her parent will be notified, and the incident report placed in the child’s file. The teacher will carefully assess the classroom environment to minimize frustration for the child.  The teacher will discuss the incident with the child’s parents to determine ways to redirect the behavior.  The child will be closely supervised. The identity of the child will be kept confidential.


  Most children stop biting soon after these actions have been taken. For those children who continue to bite, it may become necessary to remove them from the center, either for a short period or permanently.

Toileting

 

 


  When your child’s is enrolled, we don’t ask for your child to be completely toilet trained, but you are still responsible for toilet training.  If your child is training, please supply us with disposable diapers.

  Our center takes primed in cleanliness of every classroom.  We clean up after ourselves on a daily basis. Parents are asked to donate a big bag of wipes per month to keep all children clean.


 


 Reporting of Child Abuse


  We are required by law to report any suspected incidents of possible child abuse or neglect.  In some cases, we are directed by the state’s child protective agency not to notify the parent of the report. Please understand that we are legally obligated to comply with these guidelines.

13



Discipline


 

  The child is separated from the group to allow him/ her to relax and calm down. This will help with the child not influencing his/ her peers.  The child may return to the group as soon as the negative behavior stops or significantly reduced. If the child is separated from the group two or more times in one day the child’s parent will be notified.


 


 


Family


    Involvement and Communication


 

Parents are Always Welcome


  We believe parents are the most significant adults in a child’s life.  We do everything possible to ensure parents’ involvement in our programs.


 

  Developing methods for keeping communication flowing freely is an important part of each staff member’s responsibility.  Your input is important to us. Please feel free to discuss any concerns you may have with your Center Director at any time. 


 

  Please consult with the Center Director or your child’s teacher should any problems arise concerning your child, whether at home or at school.  We seek your active involvement in the center program, particularly in the following your child’s progress. We encourage you to volunteer some time with events at the Center.


 

  Parents are always welcome at Wonderland Daycare and Learning Center. We encourage you to communicate through kid's report at any time.  Talk with your child about our activities throughout the day.


 


Be a part of the Learning Process


  We encourage you to get involved in your child’s learning and development. Your child is exposed to lots of new learning activities at Wonderland Daycare and Learning Center.  Talk to your child about what fun things he/she did in the center and find ways to extend these activities at home. Perhaps your child enjoys a certain book at the center, which you could get from the library and read out loud. Art might be a favorite activity; you could buy some materials and provide an “art corner” at home.


 


14


  Many children love animals, so a trip to the zoo and get your child involve with activities at the zoo.  Or maybe your child enjoys building fantastic creations with building blocks, so visiting the science center would be fun and rewarding.


 

Lesson Plans


  The teacher in each classroom will post weekly lesson plan that provide information on activities and the skills being developed through these activities.


 


Kid's Report:


 Parents ensure you have created your Kid's Report profile online to receive daily report from teachers. The teacher will report the group activities for each day. This provides a convenient, quick means for you to be informed of your child’s daily activities and help the teacher with information on what kind evening the child has at home. This can promote a conversation with your child on the way home or around the dinner table.
