We currently participate in the childcare services program through the Workforce and we are noted as a 4 star Texas Rising Star Provider. We also are a nationally accredited school with NAEYC.(National Association for the Education of Young Children)
Hours & Location:
We are open from 6:30 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. Monday through Friday 10 months out of the regular school year, including most teacher workdays & staff development days and closed school holidays.(August to May)
We are located at 600 East Parsons, Manor, Texas. We are housed on the Manor Excel Academy High School campus located in the 600 and 700 wing which is in the back left of the school campus. We have an open door policy and encourage you to drop by to see all the great things happening at the CDC.
Staff Training & Education:
The center makes every effort to provide highly qualified staff by ensuring that all staff have training in adult and infant CPR/1st aid. As well, all of our staff must have a minimum of 30 hours of annual training in early childhood development. Included in this annual training is training on how to conduct chld assessments and the best ways to deliver and share this information with families. We believe that early childhood is a profession and we encourage all staff to further their education past a high school diploma. Many of our staff have completed their CDA credential and/or AAS in Child Development and some have graduated with their BA degree. At a minimum, a teacher must be 18 with a HS diploma.
Our school family collaborates to ensure every child will be engaged in a loving, safe environment that supports independence, imagination, natural learning, and influences curiosity through play. By offering our children a varitey of real-world experiences, problem solving opportunites, and exposure to diverse cultures, we are ensuring their cognitive growth, linguistic development, and creative expression. Our passionate approach provides acceptance and understanding to meet the needs of ALL children.
