Children's Village Preschool of Orange

Our Program

Curriculum

Our preschool curriculum is based on Jean Piaget’s and Lev Vygotsky’s constructivist theories.

We believe that children’s life experiences shape who they are in the future; therefore, we strive to involve children in problem solving situations by utilizing science (physical and natural), mathematics, and social activities. Our preschool and toddler curriculum also provides a variety of hands-on and social activities that incorporate children’s and family’s interests, needs and life experiences by exposing children to the fields of arts, music, and creative movement. All our staff plays an integral part of the curriculum by facilitating children’s explorations and positively interacting in their daily routines.

Guidance

We believe behavior guidance to be a means of fostering children’s self-control.

Fostering self-control ensures they will ultimately be able to incorporate positive values and standards into their lives. This will allow the children to interact responsibly with others in a predictable and mutually satisfying way as a precursor for lifelong learning.

Health

We strive to maintain a clean and safe preschool environment with specific policies regarding health and safety.

All our teachers are CPR and First Aid certified. Our preschool provides care for WELL CHILDREN. We depend on parents to follow the center’s policy and keep ill children at home.

Nutrition

We provide two nutritious snacks, morning, and afternoon as well as a lunch that is prepared at the school (included in the price of tuition).

Lunch is included for children 18 months and older for Core and Extended schedules. Excluded from the lunch program are infants and 1/2-day children. We feel that mealtime is also a time for learning; therefore, children are encouraged to help themselves and each other. Nutrition is also incorporated into the preschool and toddler curriculum with cooking in the classrooms. Our weekly menu is posted on the parent board and website.

Parent Testimonials

Since he began attending Children's Village, my son has shown incredible growth in his development. We love the time spent getting dirty, the interaction with animals, and the compassion shown for the children by all staff members. They are proactive in developing developmentally appropriate activities to encourage children to grown and thrive.

Love, love, love Children's Village! My daughter attended for PreK and loved it. In her first week, she saw butterflies come out of their cocoon and got to release them outside, fed bunnies and chickens, and watched chicks hatch out of eggs in an incubator. They target learning through exploration and observation during hands on activities. This is an awesome school your child will love. Drilling letters and numbers is not age appropriate and caused my daughter to not want to go to her previous school. She was excited to go to Children's Village every day.

What Makes Us Special

Staff

We have a highly motivated professional staff that cares about your child.

Our team is committed to providing the best care and education to children. We provide ongoing meetings and training to the entire staff to assure up to date practices in health, safety, and education of young children.

Environnment

Our outside space is a rare find in Orange County. The parklike setting on a one-acre lot.

This allows plenty of room for the development of essential skills (large motor) and exercise; it also provides opportunities for discovery and exploration of nature. We see the outside as a continuous learning environment designed to meet the developmental needs of children.

Community

Children are an important part of their community; hence, our program aims to support community involvement.

Family events at the center enhance children’s culture and family traditions , family involvement opportunities and field trips to local educational venues that are aligned with our philosophy.

Philosophy

Our philosophy is based on the Constructivist belief that children are active participants in their own learning.

Children learn best when exposed to a challenging environment with a variety of hands-on activities and experiences. We believe that preschool children should be allowed to explore their surroundings to develop a good sense of problem solving and decision-making. The preschool curriculum, arrangement of furniture and space reflect the interests and needs of the children enrolled in our childcare center. It is especially important to meet the basic needs of children such as, safety, nourishment, and rest for them to be able to achieve proper levels of development. We strive to challenge children’s creativity and to be aware and respectful of their emotional needs, and to support and facilitate their social development by providing opportunities for children to build positive self-esteem. We welcome and respect the diversity of cultures and encourage every member of our preschool to share their cultural traditions with us. We are facilitators of children’s development fostering their social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development for lifelong learning.
