We operate 9 licensed Child Development Centers serving infants, preschool and school age children. One center is located on-site within a migrant housing facility to serve agricultural working families.
Go Kids is committed to creating and maintaining quality programs for children that foster social, emotional, physical and cognitive development while recognizing the importance of family, cultural and community. All child care center programs offer health and nutrition education, parent engagement, social service referrals, computer learning and school readiness activities. Go Kids supports early childhood professionals by providing opportunities for ongoing technical training assistance.
Using the Creative Curriculum model, our programs incorporate an integrated thematic-based curriculum into a learning center environment. Our philosophy is based on the Developmentally Appropriate Practices model developed by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. While respecting the parent’s role as the primary caregiver, teaching staff work closely with parents to educate and support learning through play. We believe that children learn through experiences that are fun, stimulating and challenging. Children are provided teacher directed and child initiated activities in a variety of delivery modalities.
Our high quality network provides flexible days and hours to meet the individualized needs of our families. A Go Kids, Inc. team of FCC Specialists provide regular visits to provide technical assistance, encourage quality and on-going professional development. Our FCC Specialists also share local resources with our family child care homes to benefit the children and families they are serving. In partnership with the contracted, hard-working small business operators, our Go Kids, Inc. FCC Network delivers high quality child care and development services for over 600 children daily. The family child care model is often favored by families of young children due to the smaller group size, consistent primary caregiver, personal touch and
home like environment.
Each family child care provider was selected by Go Kids as they have received formal early childhood education units, have quality environment and offer developmentally appropriate programs for children birth through 12 years of age. Every family child care home is both unique in structure and learning opportunities to meet the individualized needs of children and families. After meeting standards of quality, selected providers are invited into our Network and receive on-going support. Go Kids, Inc. FCC Specialists complete regular home visit consultations for overall program evaluation and review each provider’s operation for state mandated compliance. In addition, on-going professional development is provided through network meetings, agency sponsored trainings, technical assistance and referrals to local lending libraries and other
community based trainings
