"Our philosophy is to teach the children through a fun, yet educational process so that they will be ready to meet the challenges of the adult world. We encourage them to use their senses, feelings and intellects to their full potential by presenting challenging activities that will cultivate their curiosity and awareness. We prepare the children for the future while allowing them to enjoy their childhood.We feel that the early years of a child’s life are the most important because it is the time in which the characteristics of their personalities and self-image develop. To help the children completely grow and mature into individuals thoughts with high self-esteem and self-confidence, we must show them that their thoughts and emotions are significant to us. One way in which we accomplish this goal is by having small groups of children identify with a homeroom teacher. These special teachers show love and care for the
children through praise and recognition so the children feel secure. It is very important that during the learning and development process that a child feels secure about himself and his surroundings. A homeroom teacher who can identify with the children is able to adapt the educational process to fit each child’s needs. This special and supportive atmosphere provides a sense of self-esteem and a feeling of competence for the children.Play is a very important part of learning. We create special activities that develop physical and mental coordination and growth. Play is not as simple as it sounds. Our
program of play develops the ability to invent, imagine, organize, test and discover. It is the best way to learn important cognitive skills and concepts. It is also a way in which the children learn to share, cooperate and empathize with others. They learn to create and sustain relationships, which is also imperative in order to be socially fit.We create an atmosphere where learning is fun and educational. This gives the children a positive outlook on future learning. Love and caring for others is also emphasized. With these elements the children learn to become self-confident,self-reliant and competent adults."
