About our Child Care & Preschool Center in Fort Walton Beach
Hello, I welcome you to our family here on Jet Drive in Fort Walton Beach. My name is Lisa Roberts, and I am the director of this wonderful preschool. With 19 years of experience in the child care setting, I hold a current CDA and Directors credential, and am constantly expanding my knowledge with continuing education classes.
As a school, we strive to create a safe, warm, and loving environment for the children, parents and teachers. We place a high emphasis on being the “working parent’s best friend”, providing the ideal environment in which children can learn and grow-all at an affordable rate for families.
It is my pleasure to be able to work alongside such enthusiastic, engaging teachers. Having the opportunity to impact the lives of so many children and their families is really what drives us each day. Our HighReach Learning Curriculum provides the educational foundation for each child to be successful throughout life with developmentally appropriate activities for each age group. We are work with every family and child to meet their needs, making us unlike any other childcare provider in the Fort Walton Beach area.
We encourage our children to be all they can be through the learning projects that foster creativity. Each of our teachers takes an active role in the ownership of their classrooms. Every child will find their own special place here at Childcare Network. We want to build future leaders by providing our children with real-life experiences in their classrooms. We partner with various local charitable organizations, such as, March of Dimes, St Jude’s trike-a-thon and Relay for Life.
Our VPK (Voluntarily Pre-Kindergarten) program operates on a full-day schedule for children ages four and five. Our curriculum focuses on a unique balance of phonological awareness, print knowledge, oral language, and mathematics. Our classrooms are supplied with assorted materials to help the children learn through play, and we provide weekly family connection components that keep our families involved in weekly learning activities. At the end of the year, we hold a spectacular graduation ceremony that is enjoyed by our families, friends, and community supporters.
We have an exciting and enriching Adventure Summer Camp program that includes weekly themed activities and educational field trips. Campers ages 5-12 enjoy our on-site swimming pool with certified Red-Cross lifeguards. They have many fun and exciting activities that are available throughout the day to broaden their horizons, including adult sized musical instruments, lego tables, karaoke and various interactive games. Arts and crafts, home living, and building blocks play an important role in the development of their imagination. We take field trips to venues that include Wonderworks on Panama City Beach, the Biophilia Center in Freeport, Florida, and the Sea Blaster out of Destin harbor, just to name a few. Our field trips and classroom experiences create fantastic memories that will last a lifetime.
Give me a call or come by for a tour! I know you’ll find that we provide excellent care, have the best teachers in the area, and offer a well balanced curriculum for learning at every age. Please don’t miss the opportunity to begin your child’s successful journey though life. I look forward to meeting you and your family soon.
