Hi family, I am Ms. TEE, founder and CEO of The Learning Box Childcare & Enrichment Center, INC (Sister Company to Tee's Learning Care, INC). Providing a passion for making sure our future generations obtain the proper milestones of childhood development.
Every parent has to work to make a living for the sake of the family. That is why our ENRICHMENT CENTER is just that! We do not limit ourselves in the care we provide, thus we will accept our little friends as small as infants all the way up to the school aged (8th grade). We offer a fully experienced and very qualified staff to assist with the educational and etiquette aspect of our facility.
Early Childhood Education is a branch of education for infants to children age 8. This branch of education uses age-appropriate pedagogical practice to teach young children. Here at The Learning Box, we describe using play as a method for educating young children. Those who employ Piaget pedagogy use play to enhance children’s curiosity and imagination ensuring that play education touches on the following areas: Physical, Intellectual, Emotional and Social (PILES) needs of children. We emphasize the value of play in early childhood education. Early childhood education also prepares students (through developmentally appropriate activities) for entry into upper grades, and more advanced social scenarios. A child may be taught to empathize with other children, listen, take turns, raise their hand, signal to to teachers when they need to use the bathroom, become bathroom trained, learn about safety, and other fundamentals. Other components of early childhood education include classroom design, curriculum design, parent education, advocacy for quality programming, and and understanding and compliance with legal and ethical practices. Early Childhood Education is very specifically about teacher behavior towards early learners, their peers, and the supporting community.

Early Childhood Educators Establish Routines
Routines are an important part of building a safe environment. While these routines provide other important functions such as teaching kids about responsibility and self-discipline, they also help with establishing rules and guidelines. When rules are routinely enforced, kids find them easier to follow and accidents are less likely to happen. Examples of routines are always using a step stool to reach objects on a shelf, washing hands thoroughly after using the washroom, waiting your turn to play with toys (to avoid arguments), and ensuring all materials are put back in their place after use.
Getting Rid of Hazards Keeps Kids Safe
Prevention is often the best form of safety, and so taking the time to plan a hazard-free classroom environment can go a long way toward minimizing the chance of injuries. Iur facility makes sure that:
electric sockets are properly covered
furniture is secure and not prone to tipping
furniture has rounded edges
no nails, staples, or sharp objects are hidden in carpets
rugs are secured and aren’t prone to slipping
floors are clear of splinters and cracks
low windows are guarded by a safety fence or window guards
ceiling tiles are secure and won’t fall
curtain ties are cut or securely tied out of reach
poisonous cleaning products, medicines, and classroom supplies are stored in a locked and out-of-reach cupboard
Constant Supervision is Key
Constant supervision is an important part of maintaining classroom safety. Professionals with an early childhood education experience know that regular roll calls will help identify problems early on. Our classroom design also helps with supervision. We put play areas in the middle of the room, and eliminate blindspots where children can potentially hide – thus making it easier to keep an eye on students at all times.
Food Safety Guidelines Keep Kids Healthy
Know how to properly store and prepare food so that their young charges stay healthy. Also make sure to communicate with parents and make sure that we are aware of any potential allergies. Make sure to inquire about any rules regarding prohibited foods.
First Aid and Emergency Drills
In the event of an emergency, we need to respond quickly. That is why we take the time to practice first aid and emergency drills on a regular basis. We also know that keeping a well-stocked first aid kit, and knowing where the nearest phone is located can save valuable time when an emergency happens.
We have a highly trained and qualified team that typically do the following:
Supervise and monitor the safety of children
Prepare and organize mealtimes and snacks for children
Help children keep good hygiene
Change the diapers of infants and toddlers
Organize activities or implement a curriculum that allows children to learn about the world and explore their interests
Develop schedules and routines to ensure that children have enough physical activity, rest, and playtime
Watch for signs of emotional or developmental problems in children and bring them to the attention of their parents
Keep records of children’s progress, routines, and interests
Childcare workers read and play with babies and toddlers to introduce basic concepts, such as manners. For example, they teach them how to share and take turns by playing games with other children.
Our team help preschool-age children prepare for kindergarten. Young children learn from playing, solving problems, questioning, and experimenting. We use play and other instructional techniques to help children’s development. For example, storytelling and rhyming games are used to teach language and vocabulary. We may help improve children’s social skills by having them work together to on a project. We may teach math by having children count when building with blocks. We also involve the children in creative activities, such as art, dance, and music.
Our team may watch school-age children before and after school. We often help these children with homework and may take them on a field trip.
During the summer, when children are out of school, we may watch older children as well as younger ones for the entire day while the parents are at work. Along with summer activities to keep their development established and a 1 week closed vacation.
