There is no denying the joyfulness that exists in every room of Little Angel's Daycare, Inc., a bright and inviting child care center in Johnston. The children here are busy and excited; each room is designed to stimulate curiosity and exploration; the thoughtfully chosen toys and learning materials are accessible and age-appropriate, and mostly, the team of attentive teachers is actively engaged with the children. As owner and director Carol Breault says: "Our goal is to meet the needs of the children first. We emphasize safety, cleanliness, and a nurturing staff -as well as a secure environment where children can experience the love of learning".
Mrs. Breault, who opened Little Angels six years ago, is an imaginative and energetic childhood specialist who can always be found somewhere on-site, overseeing children and staff. She has a Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Administration, but more importantly, she has the unique distinction of being one of only a few who have a specialization in Infant and Toddler Programming. This training, combined with her years of experience in child care, is evident in every detail of the program here. Carol is passionate about this state-of-the art facility, and it shows in every aspect of its design and operation. At Little Angel's Daycare, security is provided by the use of a LIVE webcam and a digital sign-in procedure. Only parents can log on to the center's website and watch what is happening in each classroom in real time. No need to worry about your child's safety or care - it is right there in plain view.
Aside from these advances, this center is about the true basics of child care -comfort, familiarity, routine, continuity, hands-on learning, play and educational preparedness. There are four, age-specific learning areas here for children ages six weeks old to five years. Each room is designed to accommodate the expectations and needs of each age group, with child-size furniture, educational toys, art/math/science centers, imaginary play areas and comfortable places for "down time" - to say nothing of the safe outdoor play equipment. Each staff member, including an on-site nurse, is CPR and First-Aid certified - and hand-selected by Carol herself.
After many years in the making, Carol is proud to introduce her newly opened pre-kindergarten room. While incorporating the need for play and imagination, the curriculum here follows strict RI State curriculum standards and emphasizes all academic requirements, including mathematics, science, reading, art. Little Angel's is 100% committed to preparing your "soon-to-be" kindergartner for the expectations of school, without sacrificing the joys and creativity that are the hallmark of childhood. This cheerful room is also entirely handicapped accessible.
Little Angel's Daycare, Inc., located at 83 Waterman Avenue in Johnston, is open Monday - Friday, 7:30AM to 5:30 PM. For more information, call Carol Breault today at 349-0711 or visit their website at www.littleangelsri.com .
