What are the scheduled nap-times?
For the nursery, nap times are unpredictable and the babies are not on an organized schedule for sleeping. Nap time for the Toddlers is from 1 - 2:30pm.
When and how are children skills assessed?
Formal Assessments are conducted twice per year. These assessments not only help parents to understand where their child is in his or her development, but also what areas can be strengthened. We incorporate both informal and standardized assessments during the year, as well as noting the individuality of each child relative to his or her own progress.
These assessments guide us, as educators, in developing our curriculum so that it matches the needs of the children in the class. Teachers’ observations of a child reflect the child’s growth and needs, both as an individual and as part of a group. This plays an important role in the day-to-day plans of the class.
Parent/Teacher Conferences are held twice per year, immediately following the completion of assessments. If we have a concern about your child’s development, a conference is required regardless of age. Conferences may also be requested at other times by either parents or teachers as the need arises.
Is there a meal plan?
Yes. Parents are encouraged to register for the meal plan. Our meal plan offers an exciting and diverse meal choices that toddlers are sure to love.
The plan includes breakfast, lunch and desserts. All meals are served with 100% fruit juices, milk or water.
What are the educational backgrounds of Pembroke Teachers?
Our teachers hold the basic licensing and accreditation requirements. Many of our teachers hold a bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education, while there are others who hold their Masters Degree or other advanced degrees and certificates.
How often is the facility cleaned?
