The majority of our highly trained and experienced staff members have been with CFC for 12 years or more, teaching, providing child care or both. Staff members attend continuing education workshops and/or college courses throughout the year. Because consistency is important with children, everyone follows the same general philosophy and practices (based on the Love & Logic approach). They are all trained in basic first aid techniques and are certified in CPR.
Although licensing requirements vary by age when it comes to the ratio of caregivers to children, we prefer to maintain low ratios to provide a higher level of care. We believe children need, first and foremost, to be children. Recognizing their talents, skills and intelligence, we provide a developmentally appropriate curriculum that allows them to learn through play, social interaction, discovery and instruction. We encourage them to make choices and experience the outcomes of their choices in a loving and nurturing environment.
