Our center-based program promotes the development of 90 children, six weeks to five years of age, through a program of active, hands-on learning appropriate to each stage of development. We use the Creative Curriculum, which encourages and supports children’s initiatives and is based on the belief that children learn by doing. Scottdale also involves parents through activities, field trips and parent education programs. We maintain low child/teacher ratios and help our teachers increase their skills through training and pursuit of additional degrees. As part of our continuing commitment to serving low-and-moderate income families, we serve 40 four-year olds through the state funded Pre-K and Head Start program. In 2015, we began offering Early Head Start for infants and toddlers.
