Welcome prospective parents and thank you for your interest in Palcare.
The Palcare program looks like no other childcare and education program available. One of the underlying concepts that make Palcare stand out is that of flexible scheduling. We allow parents to create new childcare schedules every month, if they have a work schedule that changes. Because of this flexible work scheduling for parents, we also require flexible work schedules with our staff. Together we work toward the goals of providing high quality, flexible schedule childcare in an environment that supports the growth and development of children, their families, and the care-giving professionals that work with them.
Palcare is a developmentally based childcare and educational program. The program philosophy is based on the theoretical works of Jean Piaget and Erik Erikson, and the ensuing work of developmental psychologist and educators. A very strong emphasis is placed on the development of a love for learning, the beginning of autonomy, and moral growth.
