THE ST JEMUEL MISSION

St. Jemuel Childcare Program’s mission is to “provide the children with a well-rounded education that includes all aspects of learning that are unique and pleasurable.” We believe that all children can learn, and therefore it is our mission to give every child the foundation that will allow them to master the skills necessary to succeed when they leave our program.  Our mission is to ensure that the children who attend our program will develop emotionally, physically, socially, and cognitively.

St. Jemuel provides children with learning experiences using an Interdisciplinary Team approach. Our process focuses on reviewing the child’s developmental needs and customizing our services to address those needs through partnerships with community agencies.

OUR HISTORY

The Saint Jemuel Day Care Center is a Department of Health & Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) license Child Care Center who open it’s door in the Kingsbridge community in 2003. For Seventeen  (17) years St. Jemuel has provided full day,  child care services to over 500 families and  for the last six  years as a Pre-K for All provider preparing young children to enter a competitive academic environment. We have consistently met the needs of the community and have a record of positive outcomes. Currently our enrollment is 60% Latino, 30 % Caribbean and 10% bi-racial, which is representative of the community.   Our program is designed to provide children and families with an environment that responds to cultural pride and self-esteem, enhances individual strengths, and develops relationships.  Our interpersonal services are integrated into the education plan, which includes health, mental health, nutrition, family partnerships, and disabilities.

OUR STAFF AND CURICCULUM

The staff is dedicated and highly trained. Each Headteacher has at least a bachelor’s degree, some with a master’s and Early Childhood Certification. Every teacher has an assistant, and the infant-toddler classroom has a headteacher   with the appropriate teacher-child ratio

All personnel have been certified through background checks, complete physicals, proper immunization, CPR & First Aid, disease control, and child abuse training. The monthly Professional development sessions’ for staff members ensure that our staff is fully equipped to provide the best education for your child. Our Educational Director is directly involved in the assessment of every preschooler within two months of admittance. Our parents are required to attend parent/teacher conferences each year to discuss their child’s academic, social, and emotional growth. At the end of the year, we have a Moving Up ceremony celebrating our children’s accomplishments throughout the year. Your child’s safety is our primary concern. Therefore, the Center has a very sophisticated fire alarm system, conducts fire drills every month, and has a state-of-the-art security camera system.
