Our 4S Ranch Child Development Center was built in the 4S Commons Shopping Center and opened its doors in January of 2007. The preschool provides care for children 6 weeks through 5 years old. Features include seven light and bright classrooms and a large outdoor classroom where the children tend and maintain a vegetable and herb garden. The preschool boost two large playground areas – including a art studio, science discovery area, rock climbing wall, performance stage and more.
Our highly qualified staff are dedicated to ensuring a smooth transition for your child. We encourage all of our teachers to continue their education in the field of Early Childhood Education. Our low turnover rate is a prime example of how we support their love for teaching. We ensure a school-home connection by providing parents with at-home activities that connect with the curriculum, parent-teacher conferences twice a year, and maintaining a personalized student portfolio that highlights each child’s developmental progress. We believe communication with families is very important—each day you will receive a daily note highlighting what your child learned and important reminders or information.
Our 4S Ranch Child Development Center is proud to be accredited by National Association of Education of the Young Child (NAEYC), and recognized for our commitment to reaching the highest professional standards. NAEYC sets child care Standards of Excellence in the areas of physical environment, curriculum, assessments, family, community, teaching staff, nutrition and health.
