Grow With Me ECE originated in 2020 as a large family childcare in Petaluma on Moclips Dr. After two years of successful and highly sought-after quality care, I am growing! I am expanding to a Preschool and Childcare Center to be able to offer more children with quality childcare filling a void in our community. August 1st, 2022, our center adventure has begun, 45 Henry St. Cotati 94931. We will have an infant room with a 1:4 ratio with 8 infants in the classroom, a toddler classroom with a 1: 6 teacher to child ratio where we will take toddlers 18 months to 24 months of age. At 24 months, they will graduate to our preschool program which has a 1:12 teacher to child ratio. At our preschool and childcare center. we focus on the holistic development of children, with an approach to learning that emphasizes the importance of the physical, emotional, and psychological well-being, particularly in early childhood. The program intently develops a child’s social, emotional, cognitive, and physical needs, as we build strong foundations for success in the school years to come. We are an inclusive program and accept all faiths. We present an activity-oriented program which incorporates Jewish teachings and cultural traditions into its environment and fosters those values in children through play-based activities, art projects, stories and songs honoring the Jewish values of Chesed (loving kindness), Kavod (respect/honor), and Kahillah (community).
At Grow with Me ECE, we grow social skills and form engaging relationships. Our program is play based, where we learn through daily experiences and imagination, blended with creative curriculum that supports the California Learning Foundations. Our preschool and childcare center has a touch of Montessori in the environment, as well as in our teaching style. Mixed ages 2 to 5 years old where in child learns on their level and pace. We have freedom of choice, teach independence, responsibility, and kindness.
