Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based, Teacher-Led

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

I believe in individualized program. We use positive feed back for any progress, as little it may seem for some, a child demonstrates. We understand a child's frustration and work with a child at their level.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Why do I provide childcare?
I believe that every child needs a basis for what life has to offer and what better way to prepare them than by education.

Why should you choose me?
I am a firm believer that adults are mentors/role models for children. Children thrive in some sense of structure, but they also need nurturing, sense of safety, encouragement and acceptance for being the wonderful individual they are meant to be. I also like to assist the child to their success by adding other members to the team. First, would be the child, of course. The other members of the team would be the staff at my facility and the parents or other members in the child’s family. I am an advocate of the child’s physical needs to be met, their safety, having a high self esteem and all with a sense of self satisfaction.

How will children thrive and learn in my care?
In my program, I believe children learn best in their natural environment. What environment is that, you may ask? Learning through play is the best way. Children are naturally playful and curious, so why not make it fun to learn. Every early education program must abide by a standard educational curriculum. There are certain milestones a child must obtain at different ages. I believe this to a point, but the child’s educational goals must be person centered. This means the child must have their goals tailored to their needs and progress. The other key factor that helps with the child success is diversity. As a person that was born and raised in New York City during my early childhood development, I have learned to appreciate the gift of diversity. I have learned and seek to know more about the world around me. I, too, feel like a child when I have explored what life, the environment and people of different backgrounds has to offer. Having this connection with my inner child, has given me the tools I need to understand how a child thinks at this vibrant and wonderful age.
