ABOUT THE FACILITY
Our center isn’t big and can’t hold many children, but we see our size as an advantage. Children and staff form one large, friendly family from the beginning. Every room is clean, well lit with ample daylight from the windows, and painted in bright hues to stimulate young minds.
The classrooms have space for both collaborative activity and independent quiet time. Toys, book, and educational supplies are within easy reach, allowing children to both direct their own play and learn how to put everything back. From the classrooms, children can walk out to a sizable outdoor playground. The dining area has tables and chairs designed especially for their size. Any time they feel thirsty, a child can walk to the dining area and pour themselves a cup of filtered water.
WHCA is fully equipped with all required safety equipment, including a fire alarm and fire extinguisher. Every member of the staff is trained emergency evacuation procedures, and the plans are published next to the exits. Because we take earthquake preparedness seriously, the school has put together an earthquake kit with water bottles, crackers and snacks, a first aid kit and radio flashlights.
