Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The program at WCC's Children's Center is designed to meet the developmental needs of young children.
It provides experiences that enrich and enhance each child's cognitive, language, social, emotional, physical and creative development. Within the Center's daily schedule, each child has opportunities to create, explore the environment, learn problem solving and personal interaction skills and learn concepts through first-hand experiences. Children develop a positive self-concept through a balance of child initiated and teacher directed activities.
Opportunities for solitary play as well as group activities are provided. Staff serve as positive role models and provide care that is supportive, nurturing, warm and responsive to each child's individual needs. We respect parents as the primary and most important provider of care and nurturing and we believe parents and teachers are partners in children's care and education.
