The Landis Child Development Center is an integral part of Foxwood Springs.  The LCDC is licensed to serve 99 children ranging in age from six weeks to age 12.  This intergenerational program allows the residents of Foxwood Springs and the children to bond throughout the week by actively participating in a variety of mutually shared experiences.

Reports Exciting Changes

We have made many improvements here at Landis, including structural improvements as well as added educational opportunities for the children and staff members.

The most visible change is the renovation of the Landis courtyard.  A safety ground material called Saf Dek now covers the courtyard.  The benches are reset and new play structures for preschoolers, toddlers and infants are installed.

Improvements have been made inside as well.  By expanding and renovating some of the rooms, Landis has been able to increase its capacity to enable accommodating up to 99 children, from six weeks to 12 years of age.  The increase in capacity benefits both the staff and the growing community.

One of the advantages of having a child development center at Foxwood Springs is having the intergenerational connection between the children and the residents.  On a regular basis, the children visit residents who live in Clare Bridge Gardens/Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care Center, Personalized Assisted Living and the Care Center/Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Center.

In addition, resident volunteers help with Landis activities which include story time, rocking babies and reading books.  These volunteers are a special part of our family.

The Landis program has expanded to include a computer class for children who enroll in that.  Preschool and school age children enjoy swimming in Foxwood’s indoor pool.  And, for the past eight years, Jody Brown, from the Red Cross, has offered two sessions of swim lessons during the summer.  Breakfast and lunch are prepared by the Foxwood Springs kitchen and a snack is provided each day.

Our School Age Program includes before and after school care and all day care when school is not in session.  School busses pick up and drop off at Landis’ front door for those children attending school in Raymore.

The summer months for school agers are full of activities here and away from Landis.  Even those younger than school age enjoy field trips in the Kansas City area throughout the year.  Transportation is provided by Foxwood on a new 22 seater bus!

Continuing education for childcare providers is vital for quality childcare.  Landis is proud of having teachers from time to time complete their Child Development Associate to enhance their training.  This is a continuing education program for childcare providers who work with children from six weeks to six years of age.

The success of the childcare program at Landis is the result of many factors:  providing new learning opportunities for the children and the staff members; improving and expanding the facilities; and involving residents who volunteer many hours and enrich the children’s experience at Landis.
