The value of Stages Childcare Centers
can really be felt in the classrooms themselves. No matter
the age, the teaching and administrative teams have developed
an age-specific curriculum - even for babies. We accept
children ages six weeks to 12 years. Since no two children
are exactly alike, no two children learn the same either.
Every child learns at a different level and at Stages,
we are able to strike that balance.
The state requires that infants from six-weeks to approximately
one year have a ratio of 1:5 or 2:10. For toddlers we
operate at a 1.7 or 1.8 based on age level in the classroom.
In our preschool we currently run a 1:12 or 2:24 ratios,
and our pre-k 1:14 or 2:28, and our schoolage program
1:18 or 2:36.
Stages staff is big on daily communication and also stays
in touch with parents through a monthly newsletter and
regular progress reports. We give our passionate teachers
ownership of their classrooms and as a result, delightful
and engaging programming becomes a part of each child's
day. One day the tooth fairy might visit, the next it
could be a mailman.
Camp is offered for all ages, with days filled with swimming,
field trips, railway rides, lunch cruise and much more.
We want to keep our kids challenged over the summer.
