Parental Involvement is integral to the success of any Child Care program. CAFI Child Care is designed to foster the parent’s role as the principal influence on the child’s development and as the child’s primary educator, nurturer, and advocate.
Our programs work closely with parents to develop and utilize parents’ individual strengths in order to meet personal and family goals. Parents are encouraged to become involved in policy and program decisions that respond to their needs and interests.
Our Child Care learning experiences encourage cognitive, emotional, social and motor development through an integrated program that provides each child with opportunities to experience optimal success. The education component incorporates the parent involvement, nutrition, and health components as well. The learning program must incorporate the community’s ethnic and cultural characteristics among its staff and within the curriculum.
CAFI Child Care emphasizes the importance of nutrition and a safe and nurturing environment We recognize the importance of providing mental health and psychological services to children in order to encourage healthy emotional and social development.
A critical part of CAFI Child Care’s role is focused on nutrition. We provide our children with two-thirds of their daily nutritional needs, which is important not only for their health and well-being but for their intellectual and social development. Many children living in poverty are facing undernourishment, hunger, or in other cases, obesity. CAFI offers nutritious, ethnically diverse and child-friendly food through a state of the art food service program.
