Child Development Centers

PROGRAMS AND CURRICULUM

We operate two facilites in Eau Claire; the Genesis Child Development Center and the Regis Child Development Center.

Our curriculum follows the Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards. Lesson plans are purposely constructed by using age-appropriate activities to provide your child with a variety of academic experiences that promote problem-solving abilities, persistence and a passion for lifelong learning.

Each child’s progress is monitored through assessments using the Portage Guide Birth to Six – a comprehensive assessment tool used to track progress, record essential observations and plan individualized teaching strategies for each child.

Safety and Security

  • Keyless entry system
  • Video monitoring and security cameras
  • Doors remain locked at all times to ensure the safety of all children
  • Comprehensive staff background checks upon hire and annually thereafter


Infant Program

Our program for infants is based on the individual needs of each child. We feel that infants develop best when given loving care from trusted adults and the freedom to explore and learn at their own rate. Play, self-discovery and self-expression are at the heart of day.

Each day includes:
  • Nurturing, individualized care
  • Activities and experiences that boost cognitive and motor skills
  • Floor activities, reading stories, signing songs, stroller rides and outdoor time

Toddler Program

Toddlerhood is a very important time in your child’s development. It’s a time when language, social, cognitive and physical skills are growing at a fast pace. As self-help skills improve, toddlers become increasingly independent. Our teachers encourage their curiosity by providing a safe, loving, and active learning environment.

Each day includes:
  • Individualized care
  • Planned activities

Preschool

A stimulating learning environment is an important and powerful teaching tool. Our preschool program offers a wide variety of activities to engage your child and prepare him or her for future academic success.

The developmentally-appropriate readiness experiences are part of a stimulating environment which foster and promote social, emotional, spiritual, physical and cognitive development of each child.
  • Planned teacher-directed and child-directed activities
  • Lesson plans include emphasis on language development, math and science skills, problem solving skills and building relationships

4 Year Old Kindergarten - EC4T (Eau Claire 4 Tomorrow)

The Eau Claire 4 Tomorrow Program (EC4T) is the name of the 4K program in the Eau Claire Area School District. It is a voluntary, comprehensive child development program providing an enrichment opportunity for all four year old children and their families prior to 5 year-old kindergarten.

The EC4T program is implemented using a community-collaborative model that builds on existing early learning programs, child care centers, private preschools, Head Start programs and religious-affiliated schools in partnership with the Eau Claire Area School District to provide quality early childhood education for four year olds.

There is no cost for the EC4T program. Both centers have two sessions -- one in the morning from 8:15-11:45 a.m. Monday-Thursday and an afternoon session from 12:45-4:15 p.m. Monday-Thursday.

Wrap around care is available before and after each session at regular tuition rates. Children must be 4 years old on or before September 1st.

The program is taught by a DPI licensed teacher. The curriculum addresses the Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards for preschool children and focuses on early literacy skills (Handwriting Without Tears curriculum), social-emotional development (Second Step curriculum), math skills, language and science. Daily activities include morning meeting, literacy, center time, creative art experiences and large motor activities.
