"We believe that each child is a unique individual and that they will grow emotionally, socially, physically, intellectually and creatively at their own rate.
We believe children are natural learners, and when placed in a stimulating, interactive environment, each child's potential can be fully realized.
We believe children are curious, open-minded, honest and accepting.
We believe that play is the most positive way that children learn. Play is exploring, experimenting, and joyful; play is the process through which each child discovers and develops an understanding of the world.
We believe that trust is the foundation needed in all relationships and that trust is developed through interactions with others that are fair, consistent, reliable and caring.
We believe that parents are the most important adult in a child's life, and we want to develop and nurture respectful partnerships between teachers and parents. We assist the parent and ultimately the child when we provide support, encouragement and education for the parent.
We believe in the importance of teachers encouraging curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, promoting cooperative social interactions, supporting individual creativity and diversity, and providing opportunities for children to use their growing bodies to develop a sense of autonomy and self worth.
We believe in providing a secure environment that is safe, clean, healthy and oriented to children, and our environment is arranged to offer children enjoyable and stimulating experiences.
We believe in the importance of infants developing an intimate relationship with a primary caregiver through warm, consistent and individualized care-giving routines.
We believe in positive methods of discipline and we implement developmentally appropriate and culturally sensitive guidelines to help children learn socially acceptable and personally responsible behaviors.
We believe in the dedication of the adults in our program; adults in all components of our program including teaching, administration, office, kitchen, janitorial and auxiliary staff work together for the benefit of the children.
