â€œIt is more important to pave the way for the child to want to know than to put him on a diet of facts he is not ready to assimilate.â€ Rachel Carson
At Beginningsâ„¢, we believe that children who possess positive feelings of self-worth are better able to learn about themselves and engage more fully with each other and the world around them. Our curriculum meets the unique needs of every child by providing opportunities for exploration and experimentation based on their special interests, talents, and abilities. Beginnings offers a secure and stimulating environment that encourages creativity, imagination, and desire for mastery. Our program serves children ages 3 months through six years in all areas of personal growth including emotional, physical, social, and cognitive development. Our experience confirms that every child must be allowed to progress at his or her own rate through these important life stages.
Here at Beginnings, a fundamental goal is to enhance each parentâ€™s understanding and knowledge of child development in order to help familyâ€™s thrive. Our faculty and administrative team believe that a strong working relationship between parents and school is essential and we encourage open communication, close collaboration, and active participation.
Beginnings Child Development Center is a vibrant place where young children learn and grow in a safe and nurturing environment. The Beginnings staff has created warm and welcoming indoor and outdoor spaces for children 2.9 months to 6 years to experience and explore. Here, children interact with each other and the world around them.
Offerings are developed to meet the needs of todayâ€™s families and include Infant and Toddler, Preschool, Junior Kindergarten and Senior Kindergarten classrooms. After School activities, Summer Camp, and a Spanish Immersion Curriculum round out the program.
Parents are an important part of the Beginnings community. Support and resources are available to parents at every stage of their childâ€™s development.
For twenty-five years, Beginningsâ€™ knowledgeable faculty has encouraged each child in their care to develop a sense of wonder, a love of language, their individuality, their natural curiosity, and their creative spirits.
