About Our Childcare/Preschool Program
ONEgeneration Childcare understands that all children are capable and competent learners, each bringing something unique to the environment. Our anti-bias, emergent, play-based, developmentally appropriate and culturally rich curriculum ensures each child is approached with a sense of compassion and understanding. Our programs curriculum highlights diversity and allows children to acquire skills that will prepare them for school readiness in an environment that emphasizes fun and discovery.
Our year-round program is located in the heart of San Fernando Valley. Our program is centered in a beautiful and secure environment – and provides an intergenerational component where older adults and children have the opportunity for daily interactions.
Our unique Intergenerational Program provides enriching activities such as creative art, cooking, music and movement, pet therapy, gardening and games. The connections made between the children and the older adults allows for higher empathy levels and compassion for others and their individual needs. Our Intergenerational Program helps children acquire new interests and skills all while learning the meaning of acceptance, cooperation and kindness. For those families with older relations who do not live in the area, this gives your child the opportunity to foster an ongoing bond to an older adult that they see daily.
Our curriculum framework includes the following domains of learning:
