Program

Development

Clever Endeavors Early Care & Education, Inc. employs a five dimensional view of children's school readiness, addressing: physical well-being and motor development; social and emotional development; approaches to learning, literacy and language development, and cognition and general knowledge. We utilize the California Department of Education Desired Results Developmental Profile (DRDP) to assess each child in these areas. Classrooms are set up following the criteria established for the highest (Excellent) score on Early Childhood Environment Rating Scale-Revised (ECERS-3) rubric. Our program defines school readiness as cognitive readiness, and places an emphasis on overall emotional well-being.

Communication

Additionally, every parent is acknowledged as the child's first teacher and encouragement, information, and assistance are provided through training and support.

Just as important as an enjoyable and fun, structured-but-flexible "inside" program, time for exercise and muscle development is equally important to your child's overall learning. Clever Endeavors' large play area holds several different playscapes, each age-appropriate for younger and older children and designed for safety and fun. Active outside learning and play promotes healthy all-around behavior and learning skills.

Communication is key between parents, teachers and staff, and a formal process has been developed to ensure all key contributors to your child's success are "in the know".

Two year olds are terrific learners, with an amazing amount of energy and an eagerness to try new things. A rapid increase in their ability to learn concepts and skills takes place during this time, and verbal skills also continue to develop at a terrific pace. However, the need for nurturing is still a primary need, and nurturing and learning are provided in a balanced manner.
