Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

Day in the Life

General School Mission

The philosophy of Child Haven is that children of preschool age learn best through the play experience. It is important for children to be children. Our children are involved throughout the day in settings that are classroom-based with other children of their age level. Time is also spent in settings of mixed age and development level. The children interact daily with all adults at the center.

A Typical Day

Our children spend a lot of time outside involved in running , climbing, playing games, getting dirty, and just having fun! It is the responsibility of the teaching staff to provide activities that are not only fun, but also educational. Activities and materials are available throughout the day with which the children can expand their knowledge of their environment, develop both large and small muscles, increase vocabulary, strengthen social skills, be creative, and develop skills needed for success in kindergarten.
