"our philosophy of early childhood education:
High quality early childhood education meets the total needs of the individual child.
Children learn best through play - actively participating in and manipulating their environment.
Children learn all day long - during teacher directed activities and child-selected activities.
Children learn in a variety of individual ways using all five senses.
Children learn best in a positive stimulating environment designed to enhance their self-confidence and self esteem.
Our instructional program for children is based upon current research that documents developmentally appropriate activities for infants, toddlers, and three and four year olds.
Parents are viewed as important partners with us in their child's care and education. Partnerships with parents include plans and dreams articulated during the enrollment interview, daily reports and regularly scheduled conferences, volunteer opportunities, frequent dissemination of suggestions for parent-child together homework activities, parenting skills classes, readily available information on ages and stages of development and positive guidance, and book ownership events.
