Lower Terrace KinderCare

OverviewWelcome to Lower Terrace KinderCare Learning Center. We are... very excited to meet with you and your family! We aspire to develop the whole child, so we place an emphasis on assisting children's social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development in a safe nurturing environment. Here at KinderCare, we believe it takes a village to raise a child, and the families at our center always consider us to be an extension of their families. We all really work together to ensure that children have individualized goals for their educational and social/emotional needs and we help them achieve those goals. In addition to providing a safe, secure, nurturing, educational, and stimulating environment for your child to grow in, you will have support from our team of child development experts, all of whom have a true passion for educating and nurturing children. Teachers & StaffThe loving and devoted professionals at Lower Terrace KinderCare are passionate about teaching and caring for young children. Our program is nationally accredited, which means we have ensured that our teachers exceed state minimum standards for education level and ongoing professional development. Their lifelong love of learning is evident in their desire to stay abreast of new research and teaching techniques. Families meet with teachers three times per year to review their child's progress, which is documented in our developmentally appropriate assessments, portfolios, and anecdotal notes about daily achievements. We feel privileged to work alongside families to form supportive and cooperative partnerships.  Health & SafetyOur top priority at Lower Terrace KinderCare is to provide a safe and healthy environment for our children, families, and staff. We do this through rigorous training and constant assessment and evaluation of proper policies and procedures. Your child’s security begins at the front door--literally. We have a locked security entrance that requires a numeric code to enter, with all side doors locked to ensure the security of the building. All guests or those authorized for emergency pick-ups must provide photo identification before being escorted through the building. Our teachers have all cleared local, state, and federal background checks, including fingerprinting, and have all been trained in infant and child CPR and First Aid. We do routine fire, storm, and lock-down drills to prepare for the unexpected. No child is ever left unattended, even for a minute. Teachers have all been trained in supervision, discipline and guidance, and developmentally appropriate practices to ensure they understand the risks associated with the children in their care. If your child has food allergies or specific medical conditions, we will work with you to ensure your child’s well-being while in our care. We also take the responsibility of your child’s emotional security very seriously: We want every child to feel safe, loved, and respected while at KinderCare.

We have a secure door that takes a security code to enter our building; we start at the front door with our safety measures and continue throughout the building and onto the playground. Children are never left unattended. Teachers are well trained before being left in a classroom alone. Both state and national background checks are performed on every staff member to ensure we have the best of the best! It is our desire for you to feel good about leaving your child in our care!
