Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"At the BSC Children's Center we accept each child as a unique individual and support his/her potential for mastery in all areas of development: cognitive, emotional, physical, and social. We promote feelings of dignity and self-worth and believe that feeling good about one's self is a prerequisite to learning.
The BSC Children's Center also recognizes that children learn best through active exploration and interaction with people. The Children's Center offers a rich and varied environment that stimulates children's natural curiosity, experimentation, and problem solving. Fostering of social skills is also of prime importance; we help the children to realize their own needs as well as the needs of others in group situations.
Parents are considered an integral part of our program. Daily communication and collaboration between parents and teachers are stressed. Parents are encouraged to visit the Center and observe their child, to meet regularly with teachers, and to participate in educational and social functions."
