Since 1993, the developmental growth of a child is the main priority at Friendly House’s ECDC. The child’s progress is communicated to the parent on a regular basis. Some of the activities implemented to ensure the child’s growth are:

  •  Keeping the parent well informed of specific daily activities with the Child Daily Report
  • Creating individual lesson plans for each child based on the Developmental Milestone Checklist
  • Planning specific activities based on the age group to encourage the child’s emerging skills

The child’s educator will design lesson plans with learning experiences that foster the child’s skills based on the age group in areas of:

  •  Growth and development
  • Language and literacy
  • Intellectual development
  • Physical development
  • Social and emotional development

Before and after school childcare is available for children 6-12 years of age.

The Center’s current hours of operation: Monday – Friday, 6:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., except major holidays
