Since 1991, we have served the greater Watertown community, Taft Faculty and Taft Staff with early care and education for children between the ages of 6 weeks and 5 years old.
We provide before and after school care for children 8 years old or up to second grade.
Accommodating a maximum of 38 children the center prides itself on offering a small homelike environment. The teacher to child ratio for our Infants and toddlers is 1 to 3, while the Preschool room has a ratio of 1 to 7.
CDP AT TAFT PHILOSOPHY
Our philosophy is that each child is unique. Each endowed with their own gifts and talents. One of our ongoing goals at our learning center is to recognize those gifts and promote a positive environment in which those talents may be enhanced.
The Program’s daily activities reflect our belief that children go through stages in their social, emotional, cognitive and physical growth. Your child will be given every opportunity to explore the world around them, to interact with peers and adults, and to make their own choices and decisions. Your child will be offered a balanced combination of teacher directed activities as well as child initiated activities, carpet times, structured play, supervised projects, quiet activities, and free play. During these activities an appreciation and respect for cultural differences will be fostered. We undertake this responsibility seriously, guiding every child with love, patience and understanding. The Program provides a safe, secure and routine environment in which your child can engage in these daily activities and develop friendships.
