Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The staff of the Early Childhood Center believes that each child is a unique individual. We realize that parents are a child's first and best teacher. We are sensitive to each child's social, emotional, intellectual and physical needs. We support the National Association for The Education of Young Children's commitment to developmental, individual, & age appropriate practices.
Teachers design programs to fit the individual children in each group, through a "hands-on" curriculum supported by a physical environment that is safe, comfortable and stimulating.
We instill a genuine appreciation for others and their unique qualities. We encourage children to value differences and view them as strengths. To promote this concept we show positive regard and respect for each family.
Our center’s strength lies in the commitment and dedication of our teachers. We seek teachers with competent training and a natural love for children, who are motivated to continue learning and growing. Parents and teachers work together to give each child a positive sense of self and encourage growth to his or her full potential.
