ABOUT

Children’s Village (CV) is an independent non-profit, NAEYC accredited childcare center and preschool that provides a warm, secure, and engaging environment for children ages 10 weeks through 5 years. The center has been in operation since 1972, making it one of the oldest and most reputable childcare centers in the country.

A Second Home

CV is committed to working closely with parents for the optimum benefit of each child. Parents have peace of mind during their busy work day knowing their children are safe, secure, and happy. We provide this along with a nurturing and child-centered environment. CV is meant to be a community that honors diversity through the use of a multicultural curriculum, parental involvement, and mutual respect.

Parental Involvement

Parents are welcome to visit at any time. Care of the children involves parents and teachers working as partners; daily communication is important and suggestions are encouraged. There are many opportunities for parental involvement such as field trips, birthday parties, annual picnics, and other center gatherings.

Teaching Staff

The staff consists of early childhood professionals who have had many years of early childhood experience, and appreciate and value the uniqueness of each child. Teachers work in teams and are selected on the basis of experience, education, enthusiasm, and dedication. Teachers are constantly observing and interacting with children as highly aware faciliators. They provide developmentally appropriate interventions, positive role modeling, and a consistent, nurturing presence.

We pride ourselves on a very tenured faculty and foster professional growth. The majority of our teachers have or are working towards degrees.

Administration

A voluntary Board of Directors comprised of parents, staff, and outside community members governs CV. These members are elected by the CV Community and are responsible for all policy making. A Director and an Assistant Director are on hand daily for center management, educational guidance, and to offer support to teachers, parents, and children.

CV does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, cultural heritage, political beliefs, marital status, natural origin, sexual orientation, or disability.
