Our Philosophy for Young Children:
The Philosophy of our program is to provide and promote experiences that meet the needs of the children enrolled by stimulating learning in all areas of development. The curriculum is developmentally appropriate and challenging. We believe that children learn best from direct and personal exploration of the environment. Children learn through curiosity and discovery; through making choices of trial and error; and through the modeling of adults in their world. Our programs are designed to enhance the individual skills of each child and to honor and celebrate their uniqueness.
We believe in serving the “whole child” which includes the child’s family and community. Parents are an important part of our program and we believe parents are the child’s primary teacher. Therefore, parent participation in the program is of high priority.
We believe that a well-prepared and sensitive staff is crucial to the success of our program. Staff is encouraged to continue their professional growth through formal and informal education. The program also provides opportunities for staff development that embrace and support the learning environment. We strongly believe that it is staff communicating with parents and working together that promotes continuity and stability in the child’s learning environment.
