The Roudenbush Community Center Children's Center is uniquely suited to meet all of your childcare needs from ages 6 weeks through 13. When you enroll your child on our programs you become a member of the Roudenbush family as we have watched our daycare kids grow from childcare through the after school program and then return as counselors and childcare providers themselves. We offer the opportunity to give your child a consistent second home.
Our goal is to provide a warm, nurturing environment where children feel safe, secure and comfortable. We offer a developmentally appropriate curriculum where children are given the opportunity to participate in small and large group activities, safely explore the world around them, and, most importantly, to have fun. All of the Roudenbush Children’s Centers are licensed through the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care.
We offer half day programs from 2 years through 6 years old, we offer full day programs from 6 weeks through 5 years old and we offer a unique after school program that understands the needs of working families, we are open on all school vacation weeks, we are open on all snow days, we are open professional development days, we are open on all half days and we have a full range of summer programs for ages 5 through 13.
PHILOSOPHY OF OUR CHILD CARE PROGRAMS
Learning Through Play
Our centers provide an environment where children have the opportunity to learn. Your child was born with a natural curiosity, which makes him/her want to touch, taste, see, smell and hear everything. Since play is the natural way that every child learns, it is one of the most effective methods of teaching...our method of teaching. Through play, your child’s curiosity is stimulated. He/she is encouraged to explore, imitate, manipulate and master the surrounding environment. The center prides itself on providing your child with a safe and caring environment. Our programs give your child the opportunity to participate in a variety of age and developmentally appropriate activities. Included in our programs is the opportunity for children to learn about different cultures by participating in a variety of traditional cultural events and holiday celebrations. Through these experiences, a positive self-image is reinforced and a foundation for strong cognitive and social skills is formed.
In our early childhood programs, our curriculum is based on themes that incorporate language, math, science, social studies, small/large motor skills, art, music and cooking activities.
In our school age programming, our curriculum is flexibly structured to meet the needs of the children who have spent the majority of their day in a structured school setting. The daily schedule consists of alternating periods of individual, small group, large group, structured and non-structured time, both indoors and out of doors. It is always a pleasure to see children learning while forming new friendships. When appropriate, we will take field trips or bring in special enrichment programs to complement our programming. Curriculum may vary with the individual needs of the children in a given room or that week’s specific theme.
