Children's Express Childcare and Learning Center
About this pro
Over 30 years of experience, means we are here to stay! We are proud to be caring for second generations of our families. Their repeated trust and loyalty are our biggest compliment. Established in 1978, we remain one of Omaha's top-rated childcare centers. We believe that maintaining high standards and consistent staffing is essential to providing the best possible care. Your child will learn from familiar faces, which creates continuity of care and an overall better learning environment. Studies have shown that when a child can relate to the same teacher on a daily basis, learning is enhanced. Our staff quickly becomes familiar with your child and his/her individual needs. At Children's Express Childcare & Learning Center, you'll find experienced, well-trained teachers and stimulating activities where your child will be exposed to numbers, letters, and shapes. More importantly, they learn how to socialize, they make friends and learn to share and contribute. Your children will enter kindergarten with better pre-reading skills, richer vocabularies and stronger basic math and science skills. Our program teaches kids how to be students. Your child will learn how to raise his/her hand, take turns, and share the teacher's attention. Furthermore, he/she will learn how to separate from mommy or daddy! All of this makes for an easier transition to kindergarten. Kindergarten teachers will tell you that the students who are ready to learn are those who come into school with good social and behavioral skills. Children's Express provides a place where your child can gain a sense of self, explore, play with his/her peers and build confidence. Kids in preschool discover that they are capable and can do things for themselves from small tasks to tackling bigger issues; like making decisions about how to spend their free time. The skills a child learns at the early stages provide the foundation for all other skills that will be learned throughout life. Trained and experienced preschool teachers are crucial to a successful preschool experience. For many children, preschool colors the way they will forever look at school; it is this first experience which will foster a lifelong love of learning and an overall sense of comfort and achievement within the preschool environment. Our teachers will often take basic concepts and incorporate them into play. Children at this age learn through play concepts that incorporate all of their senses, while they are having fun and practicing essential social concepts such as being respectful of each other, taking turns, etc., they are unaware that they are even absorbing educational concepts. Our teachers are able to engage each child and offer lessons through these playful avenues. The most important qualification for preschool teachers is the ability to instill a joy of learning that stays with their young students for a lifetime! The Children's Express all aboard curriculum is organized into theme based centers that address topics which encourage children to develop their skills and confidence. Each center incorporates language, math, science, creative arts, music, motor skills and social development.
