Welcome to Heather Park Child Development Center. We are a family owned and operated five star licensed center dedicated to providing a safe, healthy, nurturing environment that celebrates the individuality of each child.
Children learn through play, exploration and socialization with other children in a developmentally appropriate environment. Our goal is to provide each child with a sound foundation for learning by providing choices and the guidance needed to grow socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually.
A before and after school program is offered to parents of children in grades K-5. Transportation to and from local elementary schools is provided by Heather Park. After school, children are given a healthy snack. They begin work on homework and a variety of age-appropriate activities are offered. Teachers are available to assist with homework when needed. A homework form stating whether or not you would like your child to work on homework at the Center is included in your enrollment package. Please read this form carefully before signing. A copy for your records is provided in the Parent Handbook.
Our Pre-K classroom consists of children ages 4 and 5. We follow the Creative Curriculum which enables us to focus on the whole child. This includes the development of cognitive, social/emotional, fine motor, and gross motor skills needed in kindergarten.
We participate in the Wake County Smart Start Early Childhood Transition Program, in partnership with local elementary schools. Teachers are provided training and information to make a smoother transition to kindergarten.
The lead teacher and teacher have many years of experience in preparing children for kindergarten.
