At Riley Crossing, we take pride in having high-quality programming that provides a clean environment for both the children and seniors. Being a part of the Ebenezer and Fairview Hospital systems, we have high level of illness and cleaning protocol in place. We also have found that both generations develop a higher-level immunity which helps prevents outbreaks of illness. But most of all, we have seen, that our Intergenerational programming provides an atmosphere of happiness which reduces levels of anxiety, isolation, and depression in both our children and seniors. Happiness is the key to be healthy!
Riley Crossing teachers believe that every situation is a learning tool. When misbehavior happens, we look to see how we can help our toddlers and preschooler develop skills to work through the issue. We also carefully plan our environment to help prevent issues from arising - with large rooms and longer times exploring indoors and outdoors. We believe fewer transitions allows children to be more engaged in the learning that is happening all day long!
Our infant and toddler programs use the "Hi Mamma" app to provide communication on feedings, diapering, nap time throughout the day. Preschool children receive an end of the day note in which they fill out to help develop writing skills. Each classroom provides a weekly email to families on all the activities throughout the week and upcoming events. Our teachers work up to 10-hour shifts to in order to provide consistent communication with parents and other caregivers.
