About our Child Care & Preschool Center in Macon
Welcome to our wonderful school here in Macon, GA. My name is Ayleen Fortunato, and I am the School Director. I have spent many years working in the early childcare field, and during that time, I received my Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood Special. I don’t know if there was a certain moment that I realized I wanted to focus my attention on education, but I do remember my pre-k teacher making a lasting impression on me. This definitely played a huge part in my passion for education, and I look forward to leaving that same lasting impression on everyone at this school!
Our school strives to create a safe, warm and loving environment all of our children, parents, and teachers. We teach our children using the HighReach Learning Curriculum, which is based on years of research of developmentally appropriate activities for each age group.
We offer programs for children starting from 6 weeks of age. Our Infant Program uses the Bright Baby curriculum from HighReach Learning. This curriculum uses everyday experiences to teach our infants language acquisition, sensory awareness, large and small motor skills, visual tracking, self-help, and much more. Our Smart Steps Toddler Acedemy, Ready2Learn, and Pre-Kindergarten Prep Academy programs offer a variety of age-appropriate learning experiences using the HighReach Learning Curriculum.
From science experiments, to music and movement, to art activities; we have fun all around. And, of course, it’s never too early to enjoy a good book! Our Lottery Funded Georgia Pre-K Program operates on a full day for children who meet the age requirement (4 years old by September 1). Our Passports curriculum through HighReach Learning provides a unique balance of standards based on classroom support materials. We have an exciting and enriching Adventure Summer Camp Program (Also the Young Achievers during the school year) that includes weekly themes and educational field trips. Summer campers enjoy local venues such as the Museum of Aviation and the library. We have also had visitors from the Police and Sheriff’s Departments, the EMS, the local Fire Department and local dental offices. We also have fun field trips that help children build friendships such as the bowling alley and the movie theatre. We are helping our children build relations that will last a lifetime.
Childcare Network provides the educational foundation for each child to be successful throughout life, with quality curriculum and activities for every age group. We are affordable and work with every family to meet their needs, making us unlike any other child care provider in Macon. 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 a well-balanced curriculum for learning at every age! I look forward to meeting you and your family soon!
