We believe that children grow and learn best in a safe environment that provides opportunities to explore, create and communicate with other children and adults. These groups function independently but cooperatively, following routines appropriate to individual needs. The program is designed to be inclusive of all children, including those with identified disabilities and special learning and developmental needs. Kidz Zone serves children and families in the immediate community, as well as the surrounding geographical areas by embracing working parents and low income families. Surrounding areas include: Dearborn, Westland, Garden City, Livonia, Redford and Inkster. In additional we plan to implement an on-site Parrish Nurse Program to further meet the needs of our community. We have proudly partnered with federal assistance programs such as Department of Human Services: FIA (food program), Childcare Services and GSRP (Great Start Readiness Program). Our location is wheel-chair accessible making our facility the only handicapped-equipped center in the area.
Kidz Zone’s program is designed to include both planned and spontaneous activities in response to children’s interests. Experiences with music, movement, art, language and building are incorporated into daily plans. Regularly scheduled snacks and meals, rest time, indoor and outdoor play, and routines in physical caregiving promotes the child’s health, comfort and ability to care for his/herself. There is maximum flexibility for the children as a group and as individuals.
Children are encouraged to develop a positive self-image, to learn inner controls and to cooperate with peers and caregivers. Clearly defined limits help them recognize and accept their emotions and express their feelings as they grow and feel secure in the world around them.
