WoodsEdge Children’s Center was founded in 1989. Jackie Downing, Founder, wanted to create a quality program offering small class sizes with low teacher/child ratios. Each classroom is designed to provide a warm home like environment in contrast to a more corporate setting. The WoodsEdge staff is trained in early childhood development and practices and is knowledgeable in creating a comprehensive curriculum.
The grounds include 5.9 acres of land allowing for 3 playgrounds and plenty of room for exploration. The buildings house six classrooms and a gym. Children attend utilizing both full and part time schedules. Curriculum is planned with kindergarten readiness skills in mind. Social, emotional, physical and intellectual development is achieved as we become familiar with each individual child and their learning style.
WoodsEdge is licensed by the Department of Early Education and Care and follows NAEYC guidelines. All staff are trained in Pediatric First Aid and most are also trained in CPR. Many of the WoodsEdge staff are also parents bringing that valuable supplemental life experience into the classroom.
We encourage you to visit our program and find out more about the most valuable service you will ever purchase. The enrollment procedure includes receipt of a parent packet and a subsequent intake appointment. You may bring your child when first visiting to view the actual dynamics of the classroom. These observations are usually done in two visits.
