On-site Childcare Program
Annette Burks-Grice, Principal
The State of Florida provides funding to care for infants and toddlers of students enrolled in public school. In addition to our Parenting Laboratory, the Childcare program provides "hands-on" parenting skills during bonding time. Our activities are developmentally age appropriate for infants, toddlers, and pre-kindergarteners.
On-site childcare is provided for children from 1 month to 4 years of age. The childcare program is licensed and is funded through the TAPP (Teenage Parent Program). The parents earn bonding passes to work on and improve their parenting skills with their children, provided they attend school daily. Developmental screenings are completed on all children using the Denver Screening Program. The results are used to develop a curriculum appropriate for the child's developmental level. At the end of each school day, the childcare nursery professionals debrief the teen parent on their child's activities for the day. This provides the parent with information at the end of the day to assist both baby/child and parent transition from school to home.
The childcare facilities comprise the following: 5 nurseries, pre-K facility, age appropriate outdoor play facilities, and fully staffed childcare professionals assigned according to the state mandated childcare giver/student ratio requirements.
