Child Care Information
At Pumpkin Patch, we take the care of your child to heart! We specialize in attentive, comforting care for children from 6 weeks to 5 years and school age care for students up to age 12. Because our focus is on your child’s cognitive, physical, social and emotional well-being, Pumpkin Patch provides plenty of opportunities to get kids involved in hands-on, interactive learning. Your child will discover, grow and explore as they build new friendships and experience the world in a safe, caring environment.
Our professional childhood educators excel at providing your child with the care, attention and encouragement they need to be their best. Our exclusive Pumpkin Readiness Education Program, or P.R.E.P., is designed to teach your child key life skills such as reading, math, language and reasoning abilities. We also keep you informed. We share what your child is learning and how well they’re progressing in the Pumpkin Patch curriculum.
Pumpkin Patch takes great care to ensure that each transition to a new classroom area is smooth and easy for everyone involved. For toddlers, we offer a safe, colorful room environment that encourages exploration and builds on gross motor skills such as grabbing, grasping, holding and more. Once your little explorer has progressed past potty-training successfully, she’s ready to tackle the next level of the P.R.E.P. program for Pre-K 3 and then Pre-K4. Many Pumpkin Patch graduates are able to read, write and understand beginning math before they enter Kindergarten.
Pumpkin Patch is about having fun too! Our Pre-K 3 and Pre-K 4 programs immerse your child in lots of exciting activities that are specially designed for curious, creative young minds! We’ll put on special plays, have fun pretending, explore science and nature, dabble in art, make music and dance! It’s all a part of the joy of childhood, and at Pumpkin Patch, we aim to create experiences and a love of learning that will last a lifetime.
