Here at Adventure House we believe that all parents should have peace of mind when leaving their child in care, we pride ourselves on having an open door policy during our hours of operation.
HALT reminds us that when children are Hungry, Angry, Lonely, or Tired, there is a need to be more sensitive to children's needs.
Hungry: Anyone who interacts with children knows the importance of making sure blood sugar stays stabilized throughout the day, we offer extra snacks if we feel children are not satisfied or didn't eat much throughout the day.
Angry: Of all of the aspects of HALT, Angry is certainly the easiest one to recognize. At Adventure House we anticipate situations where anger buttons might get pushed, and try to help them understand expectations beforehand.
Lonely: All children at Adventure House are treated with love & respect and given the attention they need. Our ratios of two staff to five children help in making sure no one gets left out.
Tired: Here at Adventure House we recognize that crying & meltdowns can be a result of a new schedule or schedule interruption leading up to sleep deprivation, we put extra care in providing comfort and empathy in these situations.
Montessori is a method of education that Adventure House follows, it is based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning and collaborative play. At Adventure House children make creative choices in their learning, while the teachers offer age-appropriate activities to guide the process. Children work in groups and individually to discover and explore knowledge of the world and to develop their maximum potential.
At Adventure House we offer hot breakfast & lunch along with nutritious snacks.
Children enjoy participating during our weekly flat bread pizza creation.
Our director believes good dental hygiene starts from practicing from an early age. After lunch children at Adventure House are assisted with brushing their teeth. Tooth brushing at a our childcare center is not a replacement for proper dental care at home, but it does give an advantage in the fight against plaque.
