There is no substitute for experience, and Foundations has invested over three decades in fine-tuning the formula for success as a preschool and childcare center. We’re here to stay, with programs that are time-tested.
Our curriculum is focused on maximizing your child’s academic potential. While other preschools introduce the alphabet, our young graduates are reading! Our Kindergarten Readiness Testing Rate is one of the highest in Sarasota County! .
We promote strong moral values, supporting your desire to establish a foundation on which to build a lifelong love for your Christian church and its teachings.
With more than 20 acres and a spacious schoolbuilding we
provide ample room for learning and play. We have the space to separate children by age, ensuring age-appropriate activities and toys. We also feature auditorium for special events, performances, and other gatherings.
The greatest asset of any child-centered group is its people, and we are proud of our exceptional team! We have taken special care to screen applicants, ensuring that they meet our high standards for teaching and caring for young children. In addition to being warm and compassionate, our staff is
certified in both CPR and first aid. While the state requires only one staff person with such training, we thing the health and safety of your child demands that everyone here knows first aid and CPR.
You don’t need to worry that your youngster is playing with toys or involved in activities outside his or her readiness. Because of our spacious facility and skilled staff, we can group children by age, for learning and play.
As a part of our accreditation, we clean and disinfect our toys and classrooms multiple times a day—in contrast to other centers that conform to the state standard of once daily. Infant rooms are cleaned three times a day and changing tables are disinfected after each diaper change. Toys are regularly replaced. Every playground is meticulously maintained. And we adhere to a strict regimen for hand-washing, food preparation, and restroom protocol.
Infants, toddlers, and preschoolers have different needs and interests. We foster those specific requirements by grouping them separately and developing the types of activities (indoors and outdoors) that are stimulating, fun, and safe. For example, we are teaching sign language to our one year-olds because we recognize that the activity stimulates their learning as well as fine motor skills. Meanwhile older children get involved in more advanced activities, like the hydroponic garden that we’re planning.
Parents and families are an integral part of Foundations. You can feel free to drop by at any time. If you want to see what your child is doing, you can either visit the play area or classroom. We also sponsor family-centered activities on our campus throughout the year, like luncheons, parties, and plays
Do you wonder what you’re missing by not spending every day with your child? We’ll provide you with a daily journal that details the day’s occurrences. Plus, we provide a regular newsletter and emails with updates on school happenings, upcoming events, and important notices. You will always be “in the loop” here!
You and your child can enjoy all the benefits outlined here without paying more than at comparable preschools and childcare centers. In some cases, our fees are actually lower than theirs!
No other preschool or childcare center in Englewood offers this guarantee. But because we are confident of our quality, our 30 plus years of experience and because we built our reputation on only happy families
, we will fully refund your fees if you’re not completely satisfied in your first 30 days here.
