Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Kinder-Garden Learning Center captures the essence of the home setting for children. Our purpose is to provide children with the same type and quality of experiences that they have at home and to enhance those experiences by capitalizing on the child's remarkable receptivity to new learning. In doing so, each child's uniqueness is taken into consideration as he/she is nurtured, cared for, cuddled, and stimulated to grow and learn.
We know that no one has more information or knowledge about a child than his parents. Therefore, parents are a critical part of the teaching team. We take great care in gathering data from parents about their child's temperament, schedule and preferences. Teachers plan each child's day to allow him/her to grow and learn at his/her own pace. Communication is a vital part of our relationship with parents.
Our program is designed to gently stimulate each child to reach his/her full potential – to approach each developmental milestone with enthusiasm, persistence, and joy. Our job is to make sure that each child has numerous successful experiences every day to give him/her a positive self-concept and high self-esteem.
We believe our teachers need to know and understand how children grow and learn. When teachers know developmental growth patterns, they can anticipate developmental needs and create environments and activities that encourage emerging skills without frustration or fear of failure.
To accomplish these goals, we have a very qualified staff here at Kinder-Garden Learning Center. They are required to take at least seven (7) workshops or training classes per year.
We also feel that a child learns best by "doing", this is why we have built our curriculum on the WHOLE LANGUAGE APPROACH with HANDS-ON learning.
In conclusion, Kinder-Garden Learning Center welcomes you and your child to our center and hope that his/her stay at our facility will be a safe and enjoyable learning experience."
