Open Door Policy
As a Parent/Authorized Representative, you have the right to enter and view the childcare Center without advanced notice whenever children are in our care.
Children’s Paradise does not discriminate on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, gender, ethnic group identification, race, ancestry, national origin, religion, color, mental or physical disability in determining which children are served. Children’s Paradise welcomes enrollment of children with disabilities and understands the requirements to make accommodations for children with disabilities and implements those accommodations.
Health & Social Service
Children’s Paradise believes that early childhood education is not just about educating your child. Our services also include connecting the family to community health and sustainability resources which result in the information your family needs to thrive throughout the early years and beyond.
Parent Involvement & Education
Children’s Paradise involves parents in the following ways:
- An orientation for parents to include topics such as program philosophy, goals and objectives, activities, eligibility criteria and priorities for enrollment, fee requirements, and due process procedures
- At least two (2) individual parent/teacher conferences per year
- Parent meeting with program staff as needed
- An open door policy that encourages parents to participate in the daily activities whenever possible
- A Parent Advisory Committee that advises Children’s Paradise on issues related to services available to families and children
- Children’s Paradise is committed to effective communication between parent and staff concerning each individual child’s progress
First priority for enrollment in the State Preschool program is for age eligible children who are recipients of Child Welfare Services or who are at risk of neglect or exploitation. The California Department of Education requires a specific set aside to serve children with Exceptional Needs in the California State Preschool Program.
Program Self-Evaluation Process
Children’s Paradise conducts an annual self-evaluation process which includes, among other requirements, an assessment of the program by parents using the Desired Results Parent Survey.
