Each program is designed to develop your child to their maximum potential. Our goal is to provide your child with a warm, loving and safe environment that is a balance between home and school.

“It Is Never Too Early To Get a Jumpstart on Life.” We strive to create an atmosphere that is conducive to each child’s Social, Physical, Intellectual, Creative and Emotional development. While there is structured learning time throughout the day, we also believe that the children learn as a result of their interactions and experiences with each other during free play within the childcare setting.

Code of Conduct

Jumpstart Child Day Care Center Miami Lakes is committed to helping children develop to their fullest potential; every individual who enters our door is required to treat all others and their property in a positive and respectful manner.

Jumpstart Child Day Care Center Miami Lakes shall not permit, practice, or inflict any form of physical punishment, verbal or emotional abuse, or denial of physical necessities for any child in attendance. Reporting requirements for suspected abuse or neglect of any child while in the care of a childcare facility is the responsibility of each staff member and required by the Department of Children and Families and the State of Florida.

At Jumpstart Child Day Care Center Miami Lakes we use constructive disciplinary actions. We believe in rewarding, praising, and using positive reinforcements when disciplining your child. We feel this will bestow in them positive self-esteem and great character. We encourage parents to use this same method at home. No foul language, name calling, biting, kicking or spitting is permitted by any child or adult at our center or on the grounds at any time.

Classroom Transitions

When a child first enrolls in Jumpstart, the child is placed in a classroom based on age and developmental level. For example, a three-year-old child that is not potty trained would most likely be placed in the two year old program. The teachers would then specifically work to potty train this child and then transition the child into the three year old program.

Transitioning from one classroom to another can be a very stressful process for a child. In order to minimize this stress, we have developed a procedure for transitioning from one classroom to another. Keep in mind that each child handles these transitions differently and we evaluate and adjust these procedures each time.
