At LaVonda's Crayon Box we are more than just a childcare provider we are family. Discover the benefits of infant care in a home-like environment where teachers are focused on keeping your baby happy, engaged and secure.
We personalize care for each infant based on his or her unique schedule, nutritional guidelines, and any other special attention he/she requires. Our teachers know the importance of creating a trust-filled relationship with your infant. As our teachers soothe and nurture children they support them in building a sense of confidence by responding quickly and appropriately to their natural cues. Comforting your baby while holding, talking, singing in a quiet reassuring voice and by making eye contact with them.
Our program provides a warm, welcoming environment where your baby can grow from a bundle of joy to a bundle of curiosity. Because babies learn with all their senses our teachers expose them to multiple sensorial experiences with materials such as paint, clay, sand, light and shadows and much more. Creating experiences and opportunities that invite exploration and support the rapid and important development that is occurring in a child's first year.
Beyond a childcare, learn how toddler care can help early childhood development. At LaVonda's Crayon Box our curriculum for toddlers is designed to adapt to each individual child’s age and stage. Our experienced teachers promote emotional, physical, social, and intellectual development in a fun, engaging environment.
As your child begins to walk, run, and jump, our teachers, observe and analyze their interactions with the environment, materials, and others. Using these observations to recognize your child’s interests and create projections based on your child’s curiosity. Our toddlers' program uses hands-on exploration and social interaction in safe, engaging surroundings to help your little one learn about his or her expanding world.
Through the individual guidance of your child's teacher toddlers enjoy learning experiences that promote their blossoming independence, social skills, and foster self-confidence. Many toddlers possess at least 50 words by this age, teachers observe your child develop their expressive language skills and witness an increase in their ability to remember events. Empathy, pretend play, and social roles are explored as teachers support your children as they navigate their first relationships and begin to create their own identity.
At LaVonda's Crayon Box we believe giving your child a jump-start on learning has never been more important. Our Preschoolers are learning all the time! That’s why we’ve designed a curriculum to help children achieve school readiness in all areas of academic and social learning.
