Benefits of a Child Care Home

Updated: Dec 27, 2023

Club Tora is a unique child care home. It is unique because we specialize in pre-school programming for children 3-5 years old. This is a perfect 1-2 year program for children getting ready for a more structured pre-school or kindergarten program. It allows me to personalize the program to the needs of the children. Many are attending full day programs for the first time, as well as creating first time relationships with children their own age.

  • Compared to traditional preschool programs, our program offers a much smaller class size with a teacher to student ratio of 1:8 or less. This allows for more personalized attention, customized learning plans and a stronger bond between myself and my students. I can effectively address a child's individual needs and learning style in a smaller group setting.

  • Because Club Tora is based in my home, I have created a warm and familiar environment for my students. This is important as some children are transitioning from being at home, especially growing up through COVID, and participating in a more structured learning environment. Children who struggle with separation anxiety can find the smaller environment more comforting and secure.

  • We encourage and engage in play-based learning, which allows children to learn through exploration, experimentation, and creative expression. This aligns with the natural development of young children and creates a love of learning. It also supports development in all areas, including cognitive, social, emotional, and physical skills.

  • Our program runs Tuesday through Friday from 7 AM to 3:30 PM. I have found that our program is great for parents with non-traditional work hours or enjoy more flexibility with child care arrangements. We are conveniently located in Newport, not far from the naval base, which means access to Aquidneck Island is easy from Jamestown, Middletown and Portsmouth.

  • And lastly, I am thankful for the strong community and parental involvement in my program. Having been in business for 25+ years, I have wonderful relationships with parents as local families have participated in my program for years and continue to promote my child care home to friends, family and co-workers. This close-knit environment, I have created, allows for open communication, shared knowledge, and a supportive network for both children and families.

I understand that small child care homes are not for everyone, but for those who enjoy a smaller more comforting environment, this program is for you. Ultimately, the decision of whether an in-home preschool is right for you will depend on your individual needs and circumstances. Weighing the benefits against the drawbacks can help you make an informed decision and choose the best learning environment for your child.
