Providing safe, quality childcare
Through Aquarian Childcare Program, children have an opportunity to participate in numerous types of staff-supported activities such as art projects, group cooking, science projects, competitions, homework assistance, individual and group play time, outdoor physical activities, and designated reading time. The activities create learning opportunities for young children and allow them to interact with adult staff, their peers, and children from other age groups, in a positive setting outside their school classroom. Aquarian Childcare Program fosters development of teamwork, leadership, educational growth, friendship and social skills in a safe, fun environment. Aquarian Childcare Program offers staff competitive pay and encourages career development for child care professionals. We provide opportunity for hired administrators and staff to attend required certification training and other educational events such as college courses and conferences to build staff skills that directly benefit the program.
