Love and encouragement
Mom’s House employs teachers, infant supervisors and aides who possess a wealth of education and experience. Our child/staff ratios allow for individualized attention and a pleasant and loving atmosphere.
Staffing consists of an Executive Director, Client Administrator, Curriculum Development Coordinator, Office Manager, Administrative Assistant, four lead teachers, one teacher assistant, and approximately thirty volunteers. The staff to child ratio is one-staff/two infants, one-staff/five toddlers, and one-staff/seven preschoolers, plus the several classroom volunteers.
The children begin arriving at Mom’s House starting at 7:30am. Their day consists of a nutritious breakfast, free play, an educational program, a hot lunch, naptime, and an afternoon snack and play. Weather permitting, the children have an outside activity each day.
The age-appropriate educational program offered ensures that all preschoolers leaving Mom’s House are ready to move successfully into a school setting. Mom’s House tries to be a national model for excellence in childcare by combining childcare expertise with special attention to each single parent and child served.
The infant program is designed to provide stimulation and individual attention. The educational program for our toddlers and preschoolers includes elements of science, multiculturalism, literacy, art, music, health, and safety. We take field trips throughout the community.
