"Lisa is by far the best child care in the area! My child absolutely loves it there, and gets the best early education possible! I would recommend Ziggy's Zany Zoo to anyone!!"
Our vision is to be recognized as a leader in Olathe for an early childhood program that prepares children for success in kindergarten and in their future educational endeavors.
Our mission is to provide every child with a quality early childhood experience. We strive to create a safe, nurturing and developmentally appropriate environment which fosters individual needs. We view education as a partnership between the Provider and the Parent. We believe it is essential to develop a good rapport with each child and parent based on open communication and mutual respect creating a foundation of a successful educational experience. I empower the children by offering opportunities to make decisions and solve problems. It is our goal that children will possess confidence in their abilities and establish lasting relationships with the Providers and their Peers. By offering an engaging curriculum we strive for each child to develop a positive outlook towards school, a better appreciation of the world around them and acquire a lifelong love for learning.
We are committed to your child’s future. With my resources, experience and training, We provide your child with an exceptional learning experience. Your child will discover that learning is fun.
Now more than ever, researchers are confirming what educators have known for years—children do their most important learning before the age of five. That's why, in addition to lots of love and attention, everything we do involves early childhood development.
We believe that providing an exciting and stimulating age appropriate environment inspires the children to learn, play and explore. Learning through play helps formulate healthy experiences for children. The learning occurs by continually building upon new experiences to further enhance their cognitive, social, emotional, physical, fine and gross motor development.
The program is a research-based preschool curriculum that fosters a joy for learning through sensory-based experiences. The program is designed to weave 33 research-based skills through monthly activities and discovery projects. As children participate they are naturally exposed to skills which support their on-going social-emotional, physical, language and cognitive development. The program offers a consistent schedule with a balance between Provider-directed and child-centered activities. We believe that providing a curriculum which fosters self-esteem, builds confidence and is based on respect, empowers children to take risks in their learning. Through guided discovery and hands-on learning, children will be involved in a fully integrated curriculum.
We believe that parents serve as the first and primary educators of their children. Therefore, we strive to build partnerships with families based on co-operation and a mutual respect for the shared roles that each play in the lives of the child. These partnerships are developed through open communication and daily discussions. In addition, highlights of each day’s activities, a monthly calendar, a monthly newsletter and more are posted on the Parent Access page on the website.
It is our belief that the combination of a nurturing environment,
intentional teaching practices, meaningful relationships and family involvement
each child will develop into an independent thinker with a love of learning.
"We feel blessed that we have found such a wonderful place for my granddaughter. She runs into the house every morning, happy to be going. She loves Miss Lisa, and talks about the day when we pick her up - how much fun she has had and what they have done. It is so nice to be able to go to work, and KNOW that she is happy and being well taken care of during the day. Miss Lisa always tells us how her day went, and genuinely cares. I couldn't be happier, knowing she is safe and happy! We are truly blessed to have found this amazing place for her." - Mindy
