My New Child Care Center: Imagination Station

Mission:

Here at Imagination Station our mission is to provide each and every child with an early childhood experience of high caliber. We are endeavored to create a safe and developmentally appropriate environment which will help each individual child with their own unique set of needs and skills. Our staff actively views education as an ongoing collaboration between the parents and teachers. A child’s job is to play and we strive to incorporate play into our daily curriculum and activities.

Philosophy:

Our goal at Imagination Station is to supply a home-like environment; this is especially important for the children who are facing their first experience away from home. We offer small class sizes that allows us to provide ideal student to teacher ratios (4:1). Our smaller student to teacher ratios gives the teachers the opportunity to make a powerful impact on each child’s educational journey because they are able to provide children individual attention that is critical during their early years.
