Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The early childhood experience formulates the basis for lasting attitudes toward learning. My program philosophy is as follows: The potential for learning is greatest during the early years of a child’s life. Research has shown that learning for children is best accomplished through play, multi-sensory involvement, and a environment that facilitates learning. Providing many hands-on experiences is a very important aspect of learning.
The early education learning environment, whether in the home or in a school, should provide a rich variety of activities that will foster physical, mental, emotional, and social development. We seek to develop the whole child by addressing the physical, academic, social, and emotional needs of each child, by offering a pliable academic atmosphere, flexible curriculum, and celebrate individual progress. I believe in offering opportunities for each student to experience success and challenge on a daily basis. I believe in implementing a Christian viewpoint into every area of learning.
Activities both individual and group learning experience using a variety of concrete experiences. Each child’s growth level should be the basis for the extension of his/her learning.
Little People Destined for Greatness Childcare / Universal Pre-shool is in the business of shaping and preparing today’s children to succeed in tomorrow’s world, and all participating children will enter school ready to learn and continue to be successful learners. We will accomplish this mission. Services provided will be of the highest quality and will constantly be modified to meet the needs of the families we serve. Little People Destined For Greatness Child Care will become part of a comprehensive system of integrated community services for young children in Los Angeles County. We value children and family in all we do.

A Typical Day

"Daily Schedules and Caregiving Routines. High/Scope teachers give children a sense of control over the events of the day by planning a predictable yet flexible daily routine. The infant-toddler routine consists of arrivals and departures, choice times, group times, meals, and outside times. These common daily events flex around the individual eating, sleeping, and bodily care schedules of each infant or toddler.
