Welcome to Rogy’s Learning Place! My name is Jenny Hamilton and I recently joined Rogy’s in April 2012. It has been a very exciting journey getting to know all of the children, families and staff. I have worked in the childcare field for over 12 years and absolutely love what I do! I have been married to my husband Chris for 10 years. We have twin 9 year old boys, Caden and Cole who just entered the 3rd Grade.
I look forward to seeing each child’s personality shine and watching them grow. Thank you for visiting our site and we hope to see you soon at Rogy’s Learning Place!

Rogy’s is proud to introduce our new curriculum. Our new curriculum is called Creative Curriculum. The main philosophy of Creative Curriculum is that children learn best by doing. It states that all children learn through active exploration of the environment and the environment plays a critical role in learning. The goal behind Creative Curriculum is to help children become independent, self-confident, inquisitive and enthusiastic learners by actively exploring the environment. Creative Curriculum integrates learning in literacy, math, science, social studies, the arts, and technology throughout the day. Creative Curriculum offers teachers a wide range of teaching strategies – from child-initiated learning to teacher-directed approaches-to best respond to children’s learning styles, strengths and interests. You can visithttp://www.teachingstrategies.com/ to learn more about Creative Curriculum. In the top right hand corner of the website is a link to You Tube you can go to. There are many videos and webinars you can view on Creative Curriculum that are very useful.
What Is Positive Behavior Support?
As an approach to recognize positive behavior and reduce or eliminate challenging behaviors, Rogy’s implements a program to enhance social and emotional development and promote school readiness. The approach was developed by Center on the Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning or CSEFEL and uses a pyramid model to address the social and emotional needs of children. Rogy’s refers to this approach as PBS. PBS focuses on being proactive in preventing challenging behaviors by building positive relationships with our children and families, creating a supportive environment for our children, and using specific strategies in teaching social and emotional development. With PBS in place, the amount of time addressing challenging behaviors has been reduced and in turn has allowed our staff to focus on the positive behaviors and to support all areas of development and learning in all children.
