We welcome you and your child
to the Guilford Center for Children.
We are a professionally-staffed day care center serving children
from three through five years of age. We are open year-round
from 7:15 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Our program strives to provide quality opportunities
for the social-emotional, physical, language, and cognitive development
of each child in a safe, positive, nuturing, and consistent atmosphere
that includes language arts, gross and fine motor activities,
creative arts, science, cooking, music, movement, Spanish and
multicultural awareness, and much time for free play. We encourage
each child in the development of conflict resolution skills
and in the appropriate expression of feelings and frustrations.
Children moving on to Kindergarten have had the opportunity to
develop those skills and abilities which are necessary for a
successful Kindergarten transition.
We frequently walk to the library and other places
around the Guilford green. We also enjoy field trips to other
spots in the community.
Frequent interactions with parents and families
are an integral part of our program. You are welcome to visit
the Center at any time. Formal parent/teacher conferences take
place twice a year, and informal discussions between staff and
parents take place on an ongoing basis. We keep parents informed
about daily activities, policy
changes, and our everyday
life at the Center through daily message boards,
and through information put into "Parent Pockets."
We look forward to sharing this year with you
and your child!
