All First Adventure classrooms, doorways, hallways, gyms, and playgrounds are equipped with security cameras to ensure the safety for all of the little ones that we care for. Doorways are always locked, with access available only from our entrance with an activated key fob. Key fobs are only given to parents, and any other arrangements made by parents to visit or pick up a child is only allowed with a photo ID, and verification from the parents.
Award Winning Preschool Curriculum
Preschool starts early at First Adventure. Our Pre-K and Preschool Teachers are trained in the award winning and nationally recognized curriculum “Learning Without Tears.” Many elementary schools in Sioux Falls and the surrounding communities use “Learning Without Tears,” making their transition from our program onto their next adventure an easy one.
With a full kitchen and full-time cook at each of our facilities, you can be assured your children are getting great food that is made fresh every day right here at our centers. Menus are changed every month, with cooks encouraged to not only find new menu items, but also look for ingredients and recipes that are healthy and that the children will love to eat. Fresh fruits, vegetables, no processed meats, and healthy dairy products delivered weekly from our local provider. Kitchens are closely monitored for potential allergies, with cooks and staff all given lists and requirements for all allergies and personal preferences from parents.
The First Adventure classrooms are filled with staff that were chosen because of a long list of great qualifications and requirements. Preschool classrooms all have qualified teachers with a degree in Elementary Education, Early Childhood, Associates, or a CDA. Full background checks and fingerprinting is required, as well as an extensive interviewing and training process.
3 Learning Centers to Choose From
First Adventure is a locally owned, family run facility. We have large outdoor playgrounds, as well as indoor gyms when the South Dakota weather is not cooperating. We take great pride in maintaining the cleanest facilities, pride ourselves in organization and communication, and continue to look each day at ways that we can improve our Learning Centers.
