OUR PHILOSOPHY STATEMENT
East Gate Kids believes that children are capable and competent citizens of our community. We value their diversity and cultural beliefs and celebrate their accomplishments and milestones.
We believe children learn through exploring their environment and hands on experiences. As role models to children of a very young age, we believe in leading by example with integrity and moral values. Our diverse staff provide a caring and nurturing environment that focuses on each child’s well-being and development.
5 Star Reggio Emilia Approach Inspired Program: East Gate Kids is a 5-star center under the FOCUS criteria. We are a Reggio Emilia Inspired Center. For more information about the Reggio Emilia Philosophy, please see our Reggio tab.
Curriculum Statement: East Gate Kids is a Reggio Emilia Inspired Program. We have a strong image of children and believe that children are capable and curious individuals. It is the goal of the educators to foster and scaffold hands on experiences that highlight the interests of children and develop a curriculum that will support their ideas and experiences through social experiences and the use of natural materials and loose parts. The purpose of play is to intrigue and invite children to interact with each other, with the materials, and with the environment. The nature of play allows children to develop at their own pace in well-organized environment. The outcome of play supports social skills, fine and gross motor skills, intellectual development and language development of children.Learn More About Focus
We believe each child is unique, with his or her own distinct personality, background, and learning style, and we strive to be responsive to those individual differences.
Our teachers are CPR and First Aid certified. Each has completed the required 45 hour certification training. Many of our teachers have either already completed, or are currently pursuing, further education.
EDUCATING, NOT BABYSITTING
Rather than simply operating a day care, we envision a facility where education, including Christian education, is an essential component for children to reach their full potential in readiness for school.
SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT
When it comes to the safety of your child, there’s no such thing as being too careful. That’s why EGK childcare employs ProCare™ software. This proprietary technology allows our staff instant access to your child’s medical information, arrival and departure times, and the names of people authorized for drop off and pick up. To ensure your child’s safety, it is our strict policy that only authorized personnel are admitted into our secure building. In addition to security, we believe children learn better when they feel safe in a comfortable environment.
