The job of getting children ready for tomorrow starts today. The School District of Lee County recognized the commitment that Childcare of Southwest Florida (CCSWFL) makes to preparing young children for kindergarten by selecting two CCSWFL centers as Preferred Pre-K Providers.
Early education offers children the chance to socialize with other children, learn more about themselves, learn how to problem solve, build confidence and much more. But this doesn’t happen alone – it happens at the hands of teachers!
Math is everywhere. Concepts such as counting, sorting and time are involved in pretty much everything we do. That’s great news for parents, because we have lots of opportunities to give our little ones a head start and get them comfortable with math at an early age.
Encouraging your child to set goals is important because not only can it improve their confidence and build their self-esteem, but it also helps them focus and make better decisions. Along with this, goal setting can be used to motivate your child by ensuring that they achieve smaller goals on a regular basis. With this in mind, teach your children the importance of goal setting and how to go about it.
All six of our centers participate in the Quality Rating Improvement System (QRIS) that is used by the Early Learning Coalition to improve and communicate the level of quality in early childhood programs. We are pleased to announce that our centers have received 4 and 5 star ratings!
The “Focus on Four” initiative started in June 2017 and the purpose of this program is to provide 4 hours of free early education to 4-year-old children during the summer months.
