ACCREDITATION

The National Association for the Education of Young Children is the world’s largest organization of early childhood professionals. The NAEYC offers a accreditation system for early childhood programs based on research, development, and education of young children. The system contains standards that were created from experts and educators from around the country. The standards define what NAEYC believes all high-quality early childhood programs should provide. All Woodcrest Preschools Are NAEYC Accredited.

NAEYC has set 10 standards for early childhood programs that can help families make the right choice when they are looking for a child care center, preschool, or kindergarten. The standards and criteria are also the foundation of the NAEYC Accreditation system for early childhood programs. To earn accreditation, programs must meet all 10 standards.

THESE ARE THE VALUES WE WORK EACH DAY TO UPHOLD.

WE CALL THIS C.A.R.E

Compassionate

Woodcrest Preschool is a strong believer in empathy and compassion for others.  The school utilizes social and emotional development  programs to provide lifelong skills that helps children acquire and apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions.

Appreciate

We celebrate and appreciate every single age appropriate milestone in your child’s life.  Children are appreciated for their unique talents, backgrounds and learning styles.

Responsible

Even children as young as age two can begin the process of learning to care for their own bodies and being responsible.  At Woodcrest, our students LOVE being helpers and learning to do things on their own.

Engaged in learning

One key way to engage students in learning is to ensure the material speaks to them.  Our curriculum is carefully designed to peak each child’s interests and fascinations, give children  choices to learn in a way that is comfortable and age appropriate

DAILY CHILD REPORTS

Families come first at Woodcrest Preschool. We work closely with parents to provide superior communication.  Through our Phone App Kid Reports, Parents are provided with daily communication of your child’s preschool experience, pictures of exciting activities, and a means to contact the teacher or director.  The Kid Reports App engages parents through photo emails and texts.

Kid Reports is a National Leader in communicating with parents about what is going on in their child’s classroom. Daily pictures and activity updates are just a few of the features. Infant and toddler parents can get up to the minute information on feedings, diaper changing and sleeping habits. How cool is that?

SECURITY CHECK-IN

We care about your child’s safety at Woodcrest Preschool and have partnered with Procare, the leading preschool software company, to check in all parents with a biometric fingerprint reader.

To use the reader you simply place your finger on the glowing window, and the reader quickly and automatically scans your fingerprint. All parents will need to check-in and obtain an admission ticket in order to pick-up and drop-off a child. No Ticket, No Pickup!

Q: Is the actual fingerprint of each person recorded?
A: No. Procare does not record the fingerprint of anyone. Instead a mathematical calculation (algorithm) is used, based on a unique set of data points within the fingerprint, to identify each person.

Q: Can anyone else access the fingerprint information?
A: No. The print itself is not stored. Procare knows how to interpret the value assigned to represent each fingerprint in order to confirm that an authorized person is checking the children in. This is the only purpose of the fingerprint reader.

Q: Does a fingerprint reader help prevent identity theft?
A: Yes, because only the person to whom the fingerprint belongs can check their children in and out. No one can pretend to be you since they cannot have the same fingerprint.
