Welcome to the C. Keith Birkenfeld Early Childhood Center at Peacock. Our goal is to be a leader in building healthy communities combining content rich early childhood education, full-time care options for 6 weeks to 6 years, and family support services.
A COMMUNITY OF CARE UNDER ONE ROOF.
Our unique Creative Curriculum combines concepts of RIE, Reggio and Montessouri early-childhood programs. Responsive caregiving, support for self-directed discovery and flexibility are the foundations of Peacock Family Center Child Care. PFC’s caregivers learn to read an individual child’s cues and respond in nurturing and supportive ways. Access to a consistent caregiver who is sensitive and responsive promotes secure attachment. Secure attachment in childhood provides a critical foundation for learning and creativity and enables a child to develop meaningful interpersonal relationships in adulthood.
Children explore, construct and deepen understandings of their world as they engage in the arts–visual, language, musical, dramatic–math and science. Caregivers support children’s self-directed discovery and competence by providing individually appropriate experiences and uninterrupted time for exploring and interacting with others, materials and nature. PFC childcare programs are consistent with the current policy recommendations of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) based on current scientific knowledge of child development from birth to age five.
Our unique modular programs structures accommodate the widely diverse needs of families with AM, PM, Full-Day or Extended day available for Part or Full-time enrollment. We customize a schedule based on your family and child’s needs.
