What We Teach

Our “Growing Up on Our Block” language-based curriculum is an award winning approach that has been perfected over the past 25 years on over 10,000 children. Each age group including infants has an age-appropriate curriculum that involves letters, colors, and concepts wrapped into a weekly theme that relates to “Growing Up on Our Block.”

Age-appropriate learning is presented for the following:

  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Math
  • Science
  • Technology
  • Literature

Our learning is not just instruction-based. Through family style dining in each room, we teach socialization skills and a sense of the importance of family. Every detail in our center is a learning moment for children down to toothbrushes with children’s names on them. We focus on character building and personal responsibility to strengthen the family bond at home.

APPLE Accreditation

We are an Apple Accredited and State of Florida designated Gold Seal Quality Care Preschool. APPLE stands for the Accredited Professional Preschool Learning Environment, and it is awarded by the Florida Association for Child Care Management (FACCM).

APPLE Accreditation means a child development center has taken the initiative to surpass standards set by local and state licensing agencies in order to voluntarily measure up to standards of quality that have been established by FACCM. Pursuing APPLE Accreditation is another outward sign that Growing Room Tallahassee is raising the bar in child care/preschool  centers.

The Gold Seal Quality Care Program designation is given to those preschools achieving accreditation by an independent professional association that has been approved by the State’s Department of Children and Families (DCF).
