Wrap-Around Care 2013-2014 Program Description
This service is offered before and after our morning and afternoon early childhood programs, and is designed to provide additional programming to families whose schedules conflict with our typical arrival and dismissal times. The Wrap Around Care Program will offer developmentally appropriate activities that supplement our early childhood curriculum. All activities will be developed and supported by Stepping Stones Learning Center staff. All National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) policies, procedures, and practices currently in place for Stepping Stones Learning Center preschool programming will apply to Wrap Around care. No meals will be served, but children involved can bring their own breakfasts, lunches and snacks. Please send in food that does not require “warming up.”
