Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Developing a program philosophy statement for staff is serving as the foundation for our training efforts. Many of you have been involved in developing the document that is printed. Although it is designed to give direction and meaning to our program and our training efforts, the philosophy statement is still emerging. If you have comments or suggestions about the statement, feel free to send them to the Program Development and Training Office. In its final form, it will guide all of our efforts to provide quality child care and early education.
