My husband and I feel blessed to have found such a wonderful environment for our daughter to learn and grow up in while we had to work. LaGarderie is so much more than just a pre-school or daycare...LaGarderie has become our daughter's second home, a place she feels most comfortable and can be herself, and learn while she's there, too.
We are proud to announce that La Garderie is one of the few Childcare facilities in Harford County who has a Maryland State Department of Education ("MSDE") approved preschool. Our curriculum has been reviewed and approved by Maryland State. Our preschool teachers hold a Bachelor's Degree and or Maryland State Teaching Certificate.
Maryland State requires all Sr. Staff Childcare Employees to obtain a special 90 hour certification in child psychology and curriculum development. La Garderie goes beyond the State's basic requirements: Our preschool teachers are four-year Degreed. All employees receive special training in Emergency Evacuation that is in line with Homeland security Plans, professional development classes, First Aid CPR preparation as well as on - going formal and informal training.
Our quality assurance process is put in place to assure and keep our promise to always provide quality childcare in a nurturing and learning environment while building a strong foundation for our children.
The Quality Assurance team makes monthly unannounced visits to formally and independently evaluate the curriculum, equipment, toys, classroom materials and teacher performance.
