About Us

COVID-19

We know that there is a lot of media coverage concerning the corona virus, and these are confusing and concerning times.  We want you all to know that we are continuing to stay open and provide the same wonderful, caring services for your children.

  • We always practice precautions for the prevention of spreading germs, but we are being hyper-vigilant cleaning every surface all day long, removing and sanitizing mouthed toys, teaching/encouraging children to sneeze and cough into their elbows and providing hand sanitizer for your use upon arrival. Our children and staff thoroughly wash their hands upon entering the classroom and throughout the day and we encourage you to do the same.
  • We are kindly asking our families to let us know in advance if you or your child has an active cough or respiratory illness. We are being diligent in providing a healthy environment for everyone.
  • Your child must be fever free to attend, no matter what the cause.
  • We will follow all guidelines and recommendations from the Division of Child Development and Early Education (our licensing agency), our local Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Let’s work together to keep our children healthy!

 Please check our facebook page for immediate information.  As a back-up, tune into WRAL (NBC) or WTVD (ABC).  You can also check online at www.wral.com or www.wtvd.com.  We do not close with the public schools.

Durant Road Preschool, a 5 star center, serves children 6 weeks through 5 years.  The center is open 6:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, year round.  We are an observation training site for the Environment Rating Scales Institute.

We believe that:

  • Children grow and develop at different rates.
  • Children are naturally curious and eager to learn.
  • Play is a child’s way of working and learning.
  • Each child is unique and must be valued for his/her individuality, interests, and way of learning.
  • Understanding and respecting different racial and cultural backgrounds is valued.

Learning takes place through discovery in every experience a young child has.  It is most meaningful when it occurs in the context of everyday classroom activities as teachers provide new information and ideas.

Teachers promote desirable behavior through positive guidance.  This occurs in an interesting classroom environment, suited to the child’s level of development with age appropriate expectations.  Prevention is the foundation of our discipline strategies.

We are partners with families and welcome ideas from parents in all areas of our program.  We have an open door policy and parents are invited to visit at any time.
