About our Child Care & Preschool Center in High Point
Welcome to our preschool in High Point, NC! My name is Lakisha Garnet-Word and I am the Director of Childcare Network #242. My goal is for you to feel like you are dropping your child off at a second home; you can rely on us to ensure your child thrives in a loving, educational space. As the working parents best friend, we need to make sure our families are supported and experience firsthand the love we have for our students. To me, nurturing is a very important quality for our teachers to have. I look forward to ensuring that our teachers are connecting with the children in their care, and that when you drop them off you know they are in good hands.
As compassionate caring educators, we offer tools for each child to become successful in life, believe in their capabilities and to love themselves with faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. Love is the ingredient that creates the daily joy in teaching and learning. Our teachers pride themselves on being able to lay loving and supportive foundations for all our children, as well as implement curriculum tailored to their individual needs.
Infants, Toddlers, and Twos are exposed to an environment that encourages language development through pictures, stories, songs, and teacher-child interactions. Our Threes and the children in our Kindergarten Prep Academy, (our pre-k program for children ages 4 and 5 years of age) are provided a print-rich environment to prepare them for elementary reading.
The Young Achievers (school age children) enjoy a wide variety of activities and clubs during the school year as well as during the summer. Our Summer Adventure Camp program consists of many fantastic and engaging field trips such as swimming, visits to local museums and fun-filled days in the park. We also offer a summer reading program which helps keep the minds of our Young Achievers active.
Call us today and plan a time to come and visit our preschool on East Fairfield Road. You will see for yourself all of the awesome things that are taking place in our school as well as be able to meet our wonderful staff. We look forward to meeting your family soon!
