"Ripen With Us"
Child Care Center, Inc.
An Early Childhood Learning Center
Established in 1974
"Ripen With Us" Child Care Center, Inc. believes that Early Childhood should be a time of fun, warmth, security, exploring and discovery. Children are creative and receptive; the staff strives to nurture and encourage these qualities in the children who attend. Our purpose is to provide an atmosphere that encourages the social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth and development of the whole child.
The purpose of "Ripen With Us" Child Care Center, Inc. is to provide the best care and learning situations possible for children enrolled in the various programs while away from home. The attainment of this goal requires a sense of dedication, commitment and responsibility from each staff, parent, and child.
Established in 1974, "Ripen With Us" Child Care Center, Inc. is a 501 C(3) not-for-profit organization, governed by a Board of Directors composed of parents and community leaders. The purpose of the Board is to participate in the management and development of the Center in the areas of care and services provided, goals, strategic planning, operating policies and capital expenditures. In addition to the Board of Directors, the Center has a Parent Policy Advisory Committee; every registured family is automatically a member. There is an information sheet included with your registration that explains the roll of the Parent Policy Advisory Committee. We encourage each parent to become actively involved with the Center and its functions, so that we can insure the highest degree of quality care for your child.
"Ripen With Us" features:
An integrated three-year-old and four-year-old classroom with the Bornhava program. Bornhava is a preschool for children with developmental disabilities. Bornhava is a Danish word meaning "a high quality preschool in a homelike environment, a garden where children can be nurtured". More information is available at www.bornhava.org.
Every classroom has structured plans and open activities all geared to the needs and interests of the children. This means we bring the world into the classroom. The children see on a day-to-day basis, how they relate to the world in which we live.
There's much more, as we hope you will see for yourself with a visit soon. Of course, there is no obligation. We just know that seeing is believing.
All Staff at "Ripen With Us" are certified by the American Red Cross
to administer First Aid, CPR and
use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED).
Thanks to Delaware North Companies and Ralph Wilson Stadium, Home of The Buffalo Bills for giving us an opportunity to run a Concession Stand this 2013 Season. We will earn up to 3% of the profits from the sales. We are looking for volunteers to come out and help with this event. If anyone who was a past parent or child and over the age of 18, please call the center or email me as soon as possible to get more information from Mr. Mike and what you can do to help. Let's make this a success!
