The Little People's Place serves students, staff, faculty and community members with children ages 2 - 5 who are in need of reliable, affordable and quality childcare while attending class or working. The College administers this program without regard to race, religion, color or national origin on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The following forms, which are available at the center, must be completed and submitted before a child is accepted into the Little People's Place:
Children are expected to visit with us before enrolling to insure a proper "fit." Parents must use the childcare center as indicated on the agreement. You will be charged for the contracted number of days and hours.
We accept children ages 2 - 5 with a limited number of toddlers age 2. We have found these age groups work and play easily together.
Costs of services and payment procedures are available by contacting Little People's Place on the lower level of Cosgrave Center or by calling (814) 886-6456. Parents are encouraged to have alternative care available for days when children are ill. Sick care is not provided.
CURRICULUM ACTIVITIES IN THE LITTLE PEOPLE'S PLACE
Daily plans include organized and age appropriate learning activities, music, storytelling and free play. Weather permitting, we try to go outside daily. Lunch can be purchased from the cafeteria or brought from home. However, lunch is eaten in the daycare center. Naps and snacks are scheduled every afternoon. Parents are occasionally asked to provide snacks or materials for special projects. Each month you will receive a newsletter on paper or via e-mail informing you of what special activities or events are provided. These letters, as well as receipts, special notices and other letters will be placed in your child's locker. Please check the cubbies daily for these items as well as your child's completed work.
You are encouraged to be an active part in your child's day. Please share any information with us that will help us during your child's day.
PLEASE NOTE: Breakfast is not served. Be sure your child has breakfast at home.
