Preschool & Childcare Programs

Kind Child Program

Kind Child programKind Child is an important part of our school’s culture and a key part of our monthly curriculum. Rogy’s preschools take a skill-based approach to early childhood education, which helps us balance our attention between social-emotional, academic, creative, and physical development. Our Kind Child programming gives us the opportunity to develop social and emotional skills and valuable character traits. Be sure to ask about Kind Child when you come in for a visit. It’s a wonderful program that helps our preschool students build confidence and positive friendships.

NAC Accreditation

NAC Accreditation logoThe National Accreditation Commission (NAC) for Early Care and Education Programs provides daycare centers and preschools the opportunity to demonstrate and document the quality of their educational programs. Rogy’s Learning Place – Big Hollow first earned its NAC Accreditation in December 2008 and we’re committed to continuously improving our programs and services, which is a requirement to maintain NAC Accreditation.

The National Accreditation Commission requires childcare providers to meet or exceed dozens of standards within six component areas: Curriculum, Classroom Health and Safety, Interactions between Teachers and Children, Administration, Health and Safety, and Family Engagement.

Parent Communication

Maintaining an open line of communication with families is an often overlooked part of the preschool experience, but we have found that young children thrive when there is a strong partnership between parents and school. We offer a variety of communication pieces to keep you up-to-date with your child’s day and their academic progress, but our most popular form of communication is KidReports. KidReports is an app that allows your child’s teachers to send you real-time updates and photos. We also host fun-filled events for the whole family throughout the year so that you can build a strong relationships with our staff.

I would highly recommend Rogy’s Big Hollow. The staff there is excellent! I had to return from maternity leave sooner than I had wanted, but I was moved to tears when Kylah met my girls with a gigantic smile, called my daughter by name and said she loves to snuggle with her when she covers in her room. The staff always meets us with a friendly smile and I leave for work knowing that my kids are in the care of a wonderful group of people who have a passion for caring for children. Thank you!

My son has attended Rogy's for a few months now. Molly and Lisa have been nothing short of amazing. They are always available to answer any questions I have, and it was quickly made known that they truly have my family's best interest at heart. My son comes home happy every day from daycare. They do so many fun activities, and keeping the children safe is a huge priority for them. I can not thank the staff at Rogy's for everything they have done for us! I would recommend this daycare to anybody!

My grandson started at Rogy's on Big Hollow this week, I have been nothing but impressed every day by this center and how happy my grandson is. When my daughter and I went in to pick up paperwork the center was very clean, the staff we seen was very friendly, the infant room ( we got to look in the window from the lobby) the teachers were playing and interacting with the babies. Both teachers had masks on but looked like they were happy and having a good time. The director was so helpful and understanding with my daughter. We both were worried about placing my grandson into a center for the first time ( we were so unhappy with how he was treated at the home daycare), the director, Molly, was absolutely amazing. She answered all of our questions and by the end of it had put both of us at ease, my daughter was even in tears she was so happy. My grandson's first day we were greeted by Molly and her Assistant, Lisa. My grandson went right to them and was so happy. Every time my daughter or I go to drop him off or pick him up we are always greeted by our names, which helps make us feel welcomed. All of these things make us feel good about picking this center. But, what we love is how happy he is to go to school every day now and how happy he is when we pick him up. He talks about his new friends, his teachers ( Which are Aaria & Romi), things they do and even what he eats. Seeing him come home this happy makes me happy. I know we picked the best center. I highly recommend Rogy's Big Hollow. Molly and her staff are amazing!
