"Our Center's programs are designed to provide a rich, warm, supportive environment where the child may develop socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually.
Our educational objectives are based on our knowledge of children and the way they develop. Staff use a developmentally appropriate curriculum, based on each child's age and developmental level.
Realizing that young children learn through play and â€œhands-onâ€? experiences, each teacher plans a variety of learning experiences for each child to choose from. Interactions and activities are designed not only to encourage self-discovery and thinking skills, but to also develop children's self-esteem and positive feelings towards learning.
With the use of carefully selected materials and equipment, much of the learning occurs incidentally and informally. Our emphasis is on thinking, rather than rote learning.
Children are given the opportunity to experiment, measure, observe, classify, problem solve, be creative and interact with children and adults in a positive, satisfying manner.
