About our Child Care & Preschool Center in Columbus
Hello! My name is Vanessa Jackson and I am the director here at Childcare Network #10. I am so excited to welcome you to our school. I am certified to care for children in a variety of age groups from infants to school-age. I also have over 20 years experience working in Early Childhood Care and Education. I truly believe working and caring for children is my calling and every child I get to meet and make an impact on is a gift! I strive to do everything I can to help make sure every student leaves my school with an expanded knowledge.
Our goal here at Childcare Network #10 is to strive every day to make sure this school is a warm and friendly environment that promotes learning and development in all areas. We provide nutritious and delicious meals as part of the USDA food program in a family-like dining style. My staff and I work as a team to make our school the best it can be. Each member of my staff is CPR and First Aid certified to help ensure the health and safety of each child. I carefully select teachers that want to teach and help their students grow and excel, no matter the age group. Every member of my staff is certified and trained to guarantee each child is in the best possible care.
All of our classrooms from Infants all the way up to our 3K utilize the HighReach Learning curriculum. Our Infant curriculum is entitled “Bright Babies” it takes an even closer individualized approach to help promote optimal development in each infant’s language, cognitive, motor, and social/emotional skills. Our Toddler’s curriculum focuses mainly on the R-E-I principle (Relate - Explore and Expand - Inspire) exploring a new theme each month as well as fun activities each week. Our Two year old teachers promote potty training and independence as well as teaching each student our curriculum. Our Three year old classroom and teachers focus on preparing each child for the transition into Pre-K. Through exploration, sharing knowledge, and encouraging each child to express themselves in their own unique way.
Please do not hesitate to call or stop by for a visit/ tour any time! We would love to show you our school! We look forward to caring for your child while helping to instill in them a true love of learning!
