About our Child Care & Preschool Center in McDonough
Hi! Welcome to our wonderful school on Jodeco Road in McDonough, Ga. My name is Derrica Lundy and I am the school director. As the Director of Childcare Network #208, it has been my sincere pleasure and honor to become a member of this great school. I love creating close working relationships with the parents and staff, as well as focus on what is best for the children in our school. I am truly honored to be appointed to this position and am looking forward to working with the dedicated staff to provide the best possible educational program for our students. Parents and staff who collaboratively work together each day for the students is the exemplary quality that I work to create at Childcare Network #208.
I have held various positions with Childcare Network, including Teacher, Cook, Staff Trainer and Assistant Director. I am very excited to be a part of the CNI #28 family and to closely work with everyone to make our school even better. My greatest initiative is to provide the leadership that will facilitate a school environment to provide differentiated instruction to meet the needs of each student to the best of our ability. The educational program must be academically challenging, engage each student by linking the curriculum to previous knowledge and experience, and be exciting to promote further exploration of new ideas.
We provide a wide range of experiences for the children through our HighReach Learning Curriculum. Each month the children in the Smart Steps Toddler Academy through Kindergarten Prep Academy classes will explore a new topic. Activities, group play, and individual learning are all developmentally structured by classroom. Therefore, the experiences with each topic are age appropriate to help each child learn as much as they can before going to Kindergarten.
We believe that education continues at home, so each month there are family components including daily sheets, a book relating to the monthly topic, and activity ideas for you to engage in with your child. The teamwork between our teachers and our families is very important in the success of each child in our care.
It is our goal to have a safe, loving and educationally nurturing place for you to bring your children to while you are at work. We want every child to feel as though this is their second home and to leave here prepared to become a success wherever they go.
Plan a visit to come see us today. I know you will find that we have an awesome program and the greatest teachers in the McDonough area.
