NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - Santa Fe Child Care Centers is a local educational child care facility and has been an integral part of raising children of New Providence, Berkeley Heights and surrounding communities for several decades. Under new leadership for the past year, local owners Mark and Alison Aromando have put a significant amount of time and energy into renovating the childcare center and adding programs that have enhanced the heart and soul of what Santa Fe families already considered their 'home away from home'. Boasting a long tenured, experienced staff with little turnover, Santa Fe offers a unique child care experience. With an acre of private property on Springfield Avenue near downtown New Providence, the facilities are not only convenient for busy working families, but also ideal for kids to get outside in the yard to run, play, learn, and love every minute of just being a kid.
There have been a number of enhancements over the last year including significant renovations to some of the classrooms, a brand new outdoor vegetable and plant garden, and large outdoor playhouses to name just a few. In addition, Santa Fe has added three high quality enrichment programs at no additional charge to the families. First, a unique movement program developed in-house that encourages activities where all the children get to move, play, and learn. Santa Fe has also introduced the "Grow It Green" program with Farmer Tina in which visits from Farmer Tina are tied to a classroom curriculum where the children learn how to plant, grow, and sustain plants and vegetables in the renovated garden. And, finally, there are weekly "Little Actors Studio" classes that teach creativity and confidence through imaginative play and music; all the children at Santa Fe are encouraged to participate and express themselves from an early age.
And, most importantly, Santa Fe is known for its loving staff who boast decades of experience in the child care industry - a combination of core, long tenured teachers and new full time staffers that bring a tremendous amount of professional experience and passion to their roles and consistency to the classrooms. Based on the High Scope curriculum, Santa Fe teachers work tirelessly to care for and educate the children so they can grow and learn every day.
