TK Childcare - Aspens

Program Description

Transitional Kindergarten childcare will be located on-site, at Albany Children's Center. This full day childcare program has been designed specifically to support transitional kindergarten children and families in an AM/PM schedule.  It is aligned to the TK school day, providing high-quality, developmentally appropriate childcare in a familiar setting. All children enrolled in this program will be engaged in thematic learning experiences that involve reading, writing, arts and crafts, science, math, and social studies. The learning is play-based and offered both inside the classroom and outside on the yard. We implement a developmentally appropriate and culturally responsive program. We enable children to feel pride about their identity and we enable them to develop respect and appreciation for differences.
 
Albany Children’s Center will provide this full day childcare program for TK children in room 12, the Aspens classroom.  This program will be available to provide before and after care services, including meal times. 
 
Healthy Me Music and Movement enrichment will come into the kindergarten childcare programs during the first trimester of the school year.  It is a series of multi-sensory, developmentally appropriate, bilingual (Spanish and English) workshops focused on important health topics.  It is funded through the City of Albany utilizing Soda Tax dollars. http://healthymekids.com/
