Cascades KinderCare
OverviewWelcome to the Cascades KinderCare webpage! Thank you for your interest in our Center! We believe that when families choose to enroll in our Center, they are giving us the biggest compliment possible because they are trusting us with their most prized possessions-their children! Our mission is to create an environment where families are happy and engaged and children spend their days learning and preparing for school. We strive to engage with families and each other to create a warm, home-away-from-home where children thrive and discover a life-long love of learning! Our experts designed our curriculum — and every activity and lesson — to help prepare your child for success in school and beyond. With designated learning centers such as dramatic play and blocks in every classroom, children have the opportunity for rich social play and child-initiated discovery. You’ll also find that our classrooms feature a print-rich environment full of carefully selected materials, written charts and labels, and children’s literature. By helping your child connect spoken words and print, we’re helping develop early literacy and writing skills. Whether your child has first words or first grade on the horizon, we’re excited to show you how everything in our center is designed for learning!  Teachers & StaffThe Cascades KinderCare is full of exceptional Teachers with over 200 years of combined experience! That experience combined with a passion for Teaching, means all of our classrooms are wonderful places to learn! Our Teachers want to ensure that all families are comfortable and confident leaving their children with us, and get to learn each and every child's special needs to give the children the very best first school experience possible!   Health & SafetyOur Cascades KinderCare has a secure entrance that can only be accessed through entering a keypad code. The code to the Center is only given to enrolled families and is changed often to make sure only the most current families can enter. The building also has a security system that is directly linked to both the fire department and police in case of emergency. All playgrounds are surrounded by fences and our unique location at the end of the culdesac ensures low traffic and a safe environment. All Teachers receive bi-annual First Aid and CPR training and at least one person is on site at all times who has received Medication Administration Training as well. The Center practices monthly drills for fire, disaster, and evacuation and has a Health and Safety Coordinator on site. Your child's health and safety are the most important thing to you and to us!
