JLU Child Care is proud to not be just another daycare in Rochester, but instead an early childhood educational facility where our students and parents feel at home. There are many advantages to becoming a part of the JLU family. Here are just a few.
Our students benefit from having a large indoor gross motor room available to them throughout the day. This space is designed to allow the JLU teachers to work with students developmental goals, play structured games and work on balance and coordination all while having a fun playing! Our professionally equipped indoor play space makes JLU an ideal program for your child as they will still be able to play and exercise even throughout our cold winter months.
At JLU we are blessed to offer onsite music education to all of our students. During the week all classrooms participate in at least two 30 minute music classes.
Learning the language of music develops children’s ability to produce and appreciate it. This is especially important in the first nine years of life, when a child’s innate musicality is still developing. The more exposure a child has to music at a young age, the greater their potential to learn!
Music education in the classrooms during the week is included in the cost of tuition.
We take the safety of our students very seriously which is demonstrated through our bio-metric clock-in system at each entrance. All staff, parents, and authorized pick-up personnel must scan their fingerprint into our system to gain access into the building. Visitors to our center must sign in and be escorted through the center with a staff member.
Upon enrolling your child at our center you will be asked to provide a list of family members and friends who will be allowed to pick up your child from daycare. Once an authorized pick-up person has registered their fingerprint into our system, they will have the ability to pick-up your child any day as needed. If an unauthorized pick-up does not have a fingerprint registered, they will be asked to provide photo ID at the time of pick-up.
Our teachers will not release any child into the care of someone not on your child’s authorized pick up list unless you have provided written permission to do so ahead of time.
All products used in our center are peanut and tree nut free and our professional cooks take all necessary precautions to meet the needs of our students with food allergies. Students with allergies will either be offered a substitute meal, or parents may provide meal components if necessary. Special meals are created in a separate kitchen area and delivered to the classroom for all of our students with food allergies.
Additional safety training is also completed regularly regarding food preparation safetly and how to care for children with food allergies centerwide. Each classroom is equipped with ingredient information for each of our food products in order to equip our teachers with the knowledge needed to provide the best care possible for the children in their classroom.
JLU provies an opportunity for a monthly Parent's Night Out. A PNO allows our parents to register their JLU students (and their siblings) to spend the evening at the center with our staff where they will enjoy special activities, dinner and a end the night with a movie and snack. This is a fun night for kids and an opportunity for mom and dad to reconnect with a date or take a little time to themselves in any way they would like.
