About Our Childcare/Preschool Program
ONEgeneration Daycare offers exceptional care for infants, toddlers and an enriching preschool educational program. The developmentally appropriate curriculum allows children to acquire skills that will prepare them for school readiness in an environment that emphasizes fun and discovery. We provide year round care in our centrally located San Fernando Valley setting. Our program is presented in a beautiful and secure environment – and provides an intergenerational context where seniors and children have the opportunity for daily interactions.
Our unique Intergenerational Program provides exciting activities such as creative art, cooking, movement, music, pet therapy, gardening and games. These caring connections between the children and the seniors help children acquire new interests, skills and learn the meaning of acceptance, cooperation and compassion. 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 a senior that they see daily.
Our curriculum framework includes the following domains of learning:
