Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The philosophy of the program is to provide a safe nurturing environment that offers the opportunities for growth and stimulation in all areas of development: physical, social, emotional, language and cognitive development of the young children while responding to the needs of their families. The program is set up to challenge, exercise and support all the developing potential of the young children.

W.O.R.D. Inc. Child Care Center staff are committed to maximizing children's potential and enjoyment of life. W.O.R.D. Inc. develops children's disposition for life long learning. Curiosity, resourcefulness, persistence, problem solving, and creativity are encouraged. These dispositions enable children to be active participants in their education throughout their lives.

Children gain knowledge and develop skills in a play-centered environment. Staff encourages children to explore and experiment and construct knowledge from their play. The curriculum at W.O.R.D. Inc. is a child originated and teacher framed. Teachers provide a variety of experiences based on the interests and development of each child as an individual and the group of children as a whole."
