Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe in being open-minded about the ideas and theories that influence our practice. We value individuality and promote autonomy of action and thought by including each child as an active participant in care activities. We respect each child's natural routines of active and quiet times, eating and sleeping schedules, and fluctuation between craving independence and the need for nurturance. We celebrate childhood as a time for free and active exploration of life and of the world. Teachers, children, and parents are partners in the learning process. Family participation is critical to the quality of the program we provide.

Our goal at Imagine Learning Center is to enhance the development of the whole child. It is our mission to ensure that children in our care get a safe, healthy, emotionally secure and intellectually rich start in life. We strive to provide responsive, respectful childcare that meets the needs of the child and the family.
