At Something Extra Preschool & Childcare we believe that knowledge is gained by active exploration.
We encourage active play in areas that interest children. We believe that children are wise, thoughtful, and reflective.
Our philosophy is to not only trust our students to make these leaps in insight, but give them a safe space to do so.
A comfortable, thriving environment will truly bring out the best in your child!
Benefits Of Our Antelope Childcare
We must prepare our children for the changes ahead even when we can’t predict them. Our children must become empowered thinkers in order to meet the world that awaits them. By using active learning experiences, we help children produce ideas of their own.
We work closely with the Sacramento County Department of Education (SCOE) in the Quality Rating Improvement System and with Child Action to make sure we have the latest tools and resources available so that children at Something Extra have the best start possible.
Parents and children enjoy many benefits at Something Extra Preschool, including:
- Secure learning environment
- Flexible preschool and daycare schedules
- Stimulating daily activities
- Active learning and communication with teachers and peers
- Close proximity to local elementary school
- Nutritious meals cooked on site
- Strong preparation for Kindergarten and beyond
