Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our primary goal is to foster the development of a positive self-image in all children. Without a strong sense of self, a child's potential for learning is limited. We believe that children have a natural desire to explore their world and attempt to give it order. The environment and the curriculum at our center have been designed by the staff to encourage children to explore and create in a rich environment reflecting appropriate areas of curriculum.

Equal emphasis is given to emotional, intellectual, physical and social growth, according to the changing needs of each child. Childhood development follows a predictable path, with consideration for each child's individual schedule. Your child comes to us as a puzzle, holding a promise of a beautiful picture. The early years are a time of sorting out the many pieces of the human puzzle in the pursuit of personal understanding and awareness. We work toward the cooperation of everyone to achieve a constructive learning and working environment for all. Supporting equal opportunity goes beyond our obligation to the law. Discrimination or harassment in any form is not tolerated. We are responsible for upholding this policy, which simply stated, requires that we treat each other with respect at all times.

The Cottage Children's Center, Inc. is firmly committed to the concepts and practices of equal opportunity and non-discrimination. We administer our programs for the children and our employment practices without regard to race, religion, cultural heritage, disability, natural origin, sexual orientation, political beliefs, or marital status, unless restricted by the regulations governing the licensing of childcare facilities. We honor equal rights and access protections of federal, state, and local law. "
