Silver Spoons take pride in the quality care that it provides to neighboring communities. With 11 years of existence, the daycare has promoted accelerated learning, safe environment, and plentiful meaningful experiences for children. The directors, Mrs. Edmondson and Dr. Brujan, have a combined 21 years of early childhood experience. Expertise of such kind is a sure indicator that children are learning, protected, and most of all, having fun every day in school. It is critical to instill love and compassion to children at their most delicate young age…. And that starts at home and preserved at Silver Spoons! Upon enrolling in Silver Spoons, parents are given a set of parent responsibilities and student rules to remain enrolled in the day care. This system is in place to promote effectiveness and transparency. Among several points of interests, Silver Spoons makes a great effort to prevent bullying in all its forms (i.e., social, verbal, and physical). The New York State Department of Mental Hygiene and Child Protective Services has recognized the daycare for addressing bullying and protecting children from 2010 – 2012. The daycare’s focus on bullying is because 1 in 7 students in Grades K – 12 is either a bully or a bully victim (National Statistics for Bullying Children in Schools, 2012). And though bullying is an international problem, New York ranks as one of the five worst states for bullying (Bullying Statistics, Cyber-bullying Statistics, School Bullying Statistics, 2009). Allowing bullying or intimidation is detrimental and traumatic for any child, at any age, for any reason. Therefore, Silver Spoons will not tolerate, protect, nor harbor children or families that have difficulty cooperating with others. It is well staffed with trained individuals who love and protect children. It has daily records and anecdotes geared to red flag inappropriate behaviors from parents and their children. Interventions are immediately put in place to address the misconduct. However, some failed attempts are due to bullies and their parents claiming that they are the victims. Unfounded claims and unsuccessful interventions result in the removal of the child and best wishes to their next school. Schools and daycares are often found in these dilemmas but it is critical to focus on truths and supported evidence. The ultimate priority is the safety of all children. We invite and encourage anyone who would like to become part of the Silver Spoons family. We can be contacted at 718.543.5373 and/or at email@example.com We also welcome inquiries from daycares and parents who struggle with their children being bullied. We can suggest strategies and interventions that might make their child’s school experience more fruitful. Best, Silver Spoons Management
My child is currently attending the Children's Learning Company. I couldn't be more satisfied. When I first placed my child, at age 2 with CLC, she wasn't potty trained. While she could talk, she often preferred to point or signal instead of speaking. As an only child, she was still learning only the very basic socialization at home. Within one school year (10 months) she became very articulate, potty trained and social. She learned to count, her ABC's , and shapes. She's now 3 1/2. She writes her name, she can do basic adding and subtracting and she has roughly an hour of homework (which she loves!) a day. She'll be learning to read this coming school year and more advanced adding and subtracting. The instructors at CLC are excellent. They take great personal pride in their teaching and the accomplishments of their students. They are gentle and understanding but no push-overs. The head of the school (and it is a school, not a day-care) is Ms. Norma. She is constantly updating the curriculum for improvements and new technology. Ms. Norma is also very involved with the students on a daily basis and has classes with the older group. She is available most mornings and evenings to consult with parents and answer any concerns or inform a parent of their child's recent accomplishments. However, her involvement doesn't stop with her school. Ms. Norma works with parents to help place their children in charter and private schools after they leave her care. Overall, the staff and facility owner excel at teaching both academics and social graces. I would highly recommend the Children's Learning Company to any parent.
We love The Children's Learning Company. I can't understand parents that don't want to be involved in the caring and teaching of their child. I have only experienced greatness at the program that has care and taught my son so much. I have volunteered and spent many hours with the teachers and the Director during parties and school trips; organization has never been a problem in any event, trips are thoughtfully put together as well as creative. Monthly calendars are given to parents about the events and activities so as a parent you are always involved. Teachers care and nurture even during their hour of lunch just to ensure that the children are happy. They spoon feed, change diapers, love them when they're sad and crying, sit on the floor to play with them. I have seen these teachers in action and I can only say AMAZING WORK! Not everyone can do what these ladies do. Addressing the parent that discussed how the school trip were disorganized so untrue. Chaperoning is just that help to supervise adding extra eyes and ears to the group. Perhaps you are the parent that shows up late to school trips departures, break school policies ( there are not many at all) and expect different treatment from the rest of us. Then this is not the program for you and your child. I just want to say that the school is respectful of all parent and do apply the policies across the board to everyone. Keep up the great work teachers. Thank you for everything you do on behalf of myself and all parents.
