Seton Ridge Children's Center

turtleAt Seton Ridge Children’s Center, we fundamentally believe that children are entitled to a childhood that is rich in wonder and discovery. After all, that is what childhood is for!

We respect the child’s right to be exactly who he or she is at exactly this moment in time - with all the limits and possibilities his or her age and developmental level impose and anticipate.

These early childhood years are the ones in which the world is being absorbed through every pore. Everything is new, and so we provide as many experiences as possible in which children can discover, test, re-invent, and reconstruct their knowledge until they own it. These are the experiences that reading, math, science - all the traditional academic skills - will build upon as a foundation. But first children must glob, pour, line up, squish, sing, dance, invent - and do it all again.

In early childhood experience is the teacher, the process - not at all the product - is what has meaning. Activities need to be open-ended, allowing for all sorts of possibilities, and facilitated by a skillful teacher who knows how to ask the right questions or get out the right stepping stones.

Our children are learning how to take risks and learning to trust themselves (they are becoming competent.) They are learning about responsibility (clean-up is, after all, part of the process.) They are learning conversation, negotiation, storytelling, and making needs known: they are learning the power of the word. (They will want to read.)

Learn to expect wonder around every corner - that is something only a little child can do.

We offer classes for:
• Young 2’s - One years old by March 1, 2017
• Two ½’s: Two years old by April 15, 2017
• Three’s: Three years old by September 1, 2017
• Four’s/VPK: Four years old by September 1, 2017

 VPK program is offered for 4 year olds - no fees.  Registration is required at: www.familyservices.floridaearlylearning.com/account/login

Seton Ridge Children’s Center operates as a ministry of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church. The children are exposed to basic Christian concepts and our 3’s and 4’s classes visit the Chapel for brief, age-appropriate Chapel Talks. We believe that children this age are too young to understand any of the church’s dogma; children learn best what they see lived out before them. A loving way of life is what we strive to have the children see in all of us.
