Welcome to Grandma’s House! We have been using our hands-on, “learn through play” philosophy since we began back in 1983 with my grandmother, “Grandma” Weinkauf and my mother, Mrs. Ryan. We have evolved over the years to continue meeting Department of Children and Families (DCF) group licensing rules. In addition, we implement the high quality standards of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) without adopting a commercial curriculum model. We trust in our creative, well-educated teachers to develop their own unique lesson plans which are based on NAEYC criteria and are designed to meet the individual needs of each child. Your child’s “work” during their early childhood years is to play. The skills come naturally when they are immersed in a play-rich environment which our teachers work hard to create. It is our job to create experiences to help them develop socially, emotionally, physically and cognitively while feeling a part of a group. This way, when they head off to school, they are ready to focus and participate.
I invite you to ask any teacher or Center Director about our hands-on learning and the plans they create for your child. Our web site outlines our program policies. Please let your Center Director or me know if you ever have a question or concern. We look forward to being a part of your family’s early childhood experiences.
