New Beginnings Childcare Center provides a "Home Away From Home" environment where your child can grow, learn and play safely.
We have specially designed a nurturing, caring and supportive environment, allowing each child to learn at his or her own pace.
New Beginnings provides the foundation for children to achieve new skills, connect with others and develop their minds and bodies.

We use "Creative Curriculum" in each classroom. This curriculum provides teachers with planning tools to create integrated lesson plans and group children by developmental level. Teachers can select from hundreds of activities designed to meet the strengths and needs of each child.
Target Areas for the classrooms:
- Observation-based assessment that demonstrates progress
- Small group instruction within the classroom setting
- Regular communication between teachers and parents, designed to keep parents informed about the child's progress each day
- Variety of activities aimed at supporting learning concepts for individual age groups
|Partnering with Parents|
Forming a strong partnership with parents is one of our top priorities. We recognize that parents are their child's first teacher. Collaborating our efforts makes the child's first educational experiences positive ones.
Teachers can generate parent-friendly conference reports in both English and Spanish. Also, using a narrative description designed for parents, teachers can describe each child's current stage of social/emotional, physical, cognitive, and language development, and suggest likely next steps for the child.

New Beginnings welcomes volunteers at the center. We have a highly successful Foster Grandparent program, in which senior citizens volunteer at the center for a few hours each week.
New Beginnings staff would like to heartily thank our Foster Grandparents for their time and dedication.
