Ms. Alyssa

Hear from our Director, Alyssa Riddle about the top three reasons to enroll your child in the Barrington School of Grandview.

 

Embodying the role of Director is a task that I strive to meet and exceed every day! It is my duty to ensure a well-run, successful program that provides safety and top-quality care to its students. The following are just some of the many aspects of our program that I am proud to support and facilitate:

 

1.) Low student-to-teacher ratios- Your child’s meaningful experience in our program takes precedence over everything. By implementing a lower student-to-teacher ratio than the state of Ohio suggests, our teachers are able to provide more one on one attention to your child. Thus, creating a safer learning environment and an atmosphere which focuses on quality interactions and purposeful learning opportunities.

 

2.) All-inclusive care- As covered by tuition, our program offers organic meals to your child each day that are prepared on-site by our wonderful chef. Enacting a healthy menu promotes physical and mental wellness, which lays a strong foundation for your child’s success. Additionally, your child will be provided with all diapers and wipes, blankets, sleep sacks, bibs and organic sunscreen! Having these items included in the cost of tuition means you’ll spend less time stressing about the small things, and more time celebrating the meaningful moments your child is partaking in! Finally, as part of our all-inclusive care, your child will have the opportunity to dive into the fun enrichment programs we offer, such as music enrichment, gross-motor enrichment, dance class and water enrichment days in the summer.

 

3.) Conscious Discipline- At Barrington, we are excited to offer heart-to-heart connection with your child, and support them as they learn prosocial and self-regulation skills. Our teachers are trained in providing conscious discipline to your child. Per the website, https://consciousdiscipline.com/about/, “Conscious Discipline is an evidence-based, trauma-informed approach. It is recognized by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration’s (SAMHSA’s) National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP), and received high ratings in 8 of 10 categories in a Harvard analysis of the nation’s top 25 social-emotional learning programs. The Harvard study’s authors say, “Conscious Discipline provides an array of behavior management strategies and classroom structures that teachers can use to turn everyday situations into learning opportunities.”

 

The three reasons above are just a glimpse into our amazing program. The Barrington school is committed, in so many ways, to supporting your family and being involved in your child’s continued evolution. It is a privilege to be entrusted with the care of your child, and I thank you for your consideration in becoming part of our family!
