About

The Children in the Shoe Inc. provides high quality early care and education for young children. Our programs are play-based, emphasizing creativity, cooperation and social development. Our emergent curriculum is inspired and driven by the imaginations of children and supported by skillful, knowledgeable teachers, who plan developmentally appropriate experiences based on demonstrated effective early childhood practices. We strive to instill in each child, a joyful passion for learning and a secure social foundation based in cooperative play, self-expression and positive conflict resolution. Academics such as letters, numbers, science, geography, and social studies flow naturally from the creative and exploratory process of guided play. A child who has discovered that the learning process is fun and rewarding is truly prepared to meet the challenges of the more directed teaching methods that they will encounter in Kindergarten and beyond. The Children in the Shoe develops strong caring partnerships with each child's family through daily communication and by listening carefully to parents' ideas and effectively addressing their concerns. We offer regular parent teacher conferences and child assessments, as well as observations, resources, referrals and advice from infancy through preschool. It is our goal to enrich the lives of our employees by providing a safe, happy and supportive place of work. We endeavor to inspire our teachers and directors to continue to advance in the field of Early Childhood Development and to laugh and have fun with the children for whom we are so privileged to care.

Our son started going there at 10 months, we unfortunately have to leave because their full time spot didn't open up fast enough, but we would have absolutely stayed. Pros: center directors Dalene and Karina are great. Location. Spanish and Chinese classes. Cons: it took my son's teacher and I a while to get good communication going, but once that was worked out, we really liked her. Small outdoor play area.
