What are Center Based Programs?
This type of early education and care is delivered in a community or school based setting that serve Infants (birth up to 15 months) Toddlers (at least 15 months but younger than two years and nine months), and PreSchool (at least two years and nine months up to Kindergarten).
CSR's Early Care and Education Center, which opened its doors in 2003, and is licensed by the Department of Early Education and Care (DEEC) to serve 105 children.
The Center provides children with comprehensive and coordinated activities and they are centered around several critical elements: safety and supervision; the creation of an environment that promotes physical, cognitive, social and emotional growth through play; preparing each child for school readiness; and providing early learning opportunities through a developmental, age-appropriate curriculum. Assisting and guiding each child to develop as fully as possible, is at the very heart of our programs
Providing quality care to the families of the community, CSR offers a Whole Language Curriculum which includes literacy skills, math and science, and other basic curriculum skills. With a strong history of serving communities of color, the Center meets an even greater need in educating children on great achievers and leaders of color and their contributions to society, thereby providing a strong sense of their cultural history and community.
Finally, the Center also has a Web Cam installed in which parents, grandparents and other relatives may log on with secured access to their computers from anywhere in the world to see their children at play in their classroom.
