Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"It is the philosophy of Pleasant Park Child Development Center to encourage and support each child as they grow to their full potential in all areas of development. Each child is a unique individual and will be treated as such, enhancing a positive self-concept and building a strong foundation for success in life. It is our responsibility to care for the whole child, recognizing the special characteristics of each. A child's interests and goals shall be considered, and activities shall be created to enhance their abilities.
It is also the philosophy of Pleasant Park Child Development Center to create a loving environment for each child. We realize that the first years are the most critical years to help develop a child’s self-esteem and security. Our primary mission is to provide a rich, warm and supportive environment in which the child may develop socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually."
