About Alvarado Family Child Care
Early care and education is incredibly important for child development and a home-based educational program like at Alvarado Family Child Care can be just the way to start the learning journey! At Alvarado Family Child Care, families will benefit from a family-like environment in an in-home setting. This setting can help facilitate a smooth transition for children into the educational world, as children benefit from a small setting and small group sizes but get the socialization and opportunities to explore the wider world. With a full-time schedule, as well, Alvarado Family Child Care allows parents to work and assume other responsibilities while their children are playing and learning amongst their peers. Children have the opportunity to get used to the natural rhythms of a daily structured learning environment with a full-time schedule, which can help smooth the transition into kindergarten and future education. The full-time schedule allows plenty of opportunities for creativity and fun, too, as the day always feels too short when you’re having fun! Alvarado Family Child Care also offers an outdoors, nature-focused curriculum that emphasizes student connection with the natural world. Nature-focused curriculums seek to stimulate the imagination, wonder and delight that comes with being outdoors and playing in a multi-sensory environment. Playing outside is one of the great joys of childhood, and schools like Alvarado Family Child Care believe that nurturing that joy in a safe, supervised space promotes freedom of expression, independence and appropriate risk-taking that builds student confidence and well-being.
