Llave del Mundo Bilingual Child Development Home
Llave del Mundo Bilingual Child Development Home is a home-based child care and preschool program in Washington, DC. The child care facility is located near Kalorama Park in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington, DC (off Columbia Rd NW and Calvert St NW, near the Woodley Park-Zoo/Adams Morgan Metro Station and the Smithsonian National Zoological Park). PHILOSOPHY: As a child care provider, I have a strong belief that ALL children are diverse and unique individuals who have strengths and are naturally curious. Children need to be provided with an organized, child-directed learning environment that emphasizes mutual respect, fun, discovery, literacy and addresses sensory needs. In a supportive environment, I will provide the conditions for all children to construct knowledge, focusing on the learning process rather than the end product. Program Philosophy is based on principles of child development supporting the child to gain a sense of self-worth by helping them develop at their own individual pace while learning basic skills feeling confident, secure enough to explore and grow in a stimulating educational and social environment. CURRICULUM: I incorporate a preschool curriculum into our daily activities to support infants and toddlers to have a nurturing, consistent, and loving environment, and to prepare older children for school. I offer individual activities that are specifically designed to help the child grow and develop based on his/her strengths and weaknesses; addressing all areas of development. I use The Creative Curriculum® for Preschool and Montessori curriculum that includes new research and theories from the field of early childhood education into a practical, easy-to-understand approach to working with children and their families. It is a comprehensive curriculum with a clear organizational structure and a particular focus on interest areas. MISSION: I am a dedicated and supportive provider and the mission of my program is to: - Continue to grow professionally in order to better serve children and families. - Provide appropriate services to ALL children. - Utilize strengths and challenge weaknesses. - Foster self-esteem while celebrating children’s successes. - Establish a fun and safe learning environment. - Enable children to make discoveries and realize their potential. - Support and build a trusting relationship with parents, children, and other professionals in my community. GOALS: - To offer early childhood care services in a way that is specifically designed by my knowledge in early childhood education, according to the family’s priorities, beliefs, and needs of the child. - To develop a nurturing relationship with each child and their family. - To provide play opportunities for all children who are enrolled in my program. - To provide support and help for families as they seek out resources to meet their child’s needs. To help children: - Develop effective communication skills; - Develop the ability to choose and follow through on personally meaningful experiences; - Develop large and small muscles through play-based activities; - By demonstrating through interaction with the developmentally appropriate environment and through self-initiated and teacher-facilitated activities, increasing levels of conceptual and cognitive development; - By demonstrating an awareness of daily routine; - Develop a level of independence in self-care skills; - Develop problem-solving strategies; - Develop aesthetic appreciation as they explore the developmentally appropriate environment around them

Temple Sinai Nursery School

At Temple Sinai Nursery School (TSNS), we believe in nurturing the individuality of each child. We see children as competent individuals who flourish... in a joyful early childhood setting that encourages freedom of expression, focuses on building strong social-emotional skills, and promotes self-confidence through active hands-on learning. The philosophy of TSNS is based on the theories of Piaget, Vygotsky, Erikson, Gardner, the Bank Street Model and constructivist education. We are also inspired by the philosophy of the Reggio Emilia Schools in Italy. Our program is imbued with Jewish values that emphasize and promote kindness (g'milut chasadim), doing good deeds (mitzvot) and taking care of our world (tikkun olam). At TSNS, we believe that play is the primary vehicle through which learning progresses in the early years. Sensitivity to the needs of parents of young children always underpins our efforts. In addition to providing an excellent developmentally appropriate early childhood curriculum, we take pride in being a part of the larger Temple Sinai community and helping parents foster a positive sense of Jewish identity in their children. A warm and welcoming parent community is at the heart of our program; parents are involved in the daily life of the program and take leadership roles at the Nursery School. The Parents Association plans and supports several family and school-wide events each year such as the Family Fall Holidays Festival, the annual Winter Family Concert, the school-wide Hanukkah Celebration and Model Seder, and the annual Spring Auction. NS GardenThis program maintains the highest standards of early childhood education. We have achieved accreditation by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and we are a Partnership for Jewish Life and Learning Commended School. Small classes, and a physical environment that includes a kitchen designed specifically for children and teachers to cook, vegetable and flower garden, motor room, and "investigation room" where children have hands-on experiences with science and art, complement our core program. Every morning, we welcome children into our extended playground that sets the stage for imaginative play and physical development, with its bike path, climbing equipment, and rock and sand gardens. "The city school with the country playground" Every year at our Parents Evening we share the philosophy of our school through word play and photographs of every child. Temple Sinai Nursery School is a child care center in Washington, DC. We are open from 6:00am to 6:00pm. To learn more about us, please send us an email.

Montessori School of Chevy Chase

The Montessori School of Chevy Chase was founded in 1999 and serves approximately 60 children from many diverse cultures and backgrounds each year.... Our school enjoys a reputation for academic excellence and active parent involvement. Our founder/director of the school, Marlene Cherry, holds an AMI Primary Montessori Diploma, a Masters Degree in Montessori Education and a BS in Education. All teachers are Montessori certified and take ongoing classes to further their education. The Montessori School of Chevy Chase is a member of the International Montessori Council and the American Montessori Society. Overview Montessori is an educational approach focusing on independence, respect for a child’s natural development, and freedom (within limits). It is founded on the premise that while children develop in different ways and at different rates, they do so in a defined sequence. The Montessori approach holds that young children have a natural drive to understand the world around them and they can best learn through self-teaching in carefully prepared environments, under the guidance of a caring teacher. Montessori Teachers Montessori teachers help individual children find challenges appropriate for their skill level. While traditional teachers tend to act as leaders and organizers, Montessori teachers serve more as a guides and facilitators. It is their job to provide positive reinforcement and steer children towards challenging activities while respecting their freedom of choice. Montessori Classrooms Classrooms in Montessori schools are specially designed to spark curiosity, minimize unnecessary failure and promote feelings of joy when achievement occurs. Children start by focusing on concrete and manipulative tasks then shift to more abstract tasks as knowledge and proficiency increase. In a Montessori classroom, the goal is to stimulate the desire for self exploration and understanding. Our Program Child The Montessori School of Chevy Chase provides quality learning and growth opportunities for children between the ages of 18 months and 6 years old. All of our programs fully embrace the Montessori method of teaching which includes an emphasis on self-directed learning, mixed age group classrooms and building independence & confidence.
