EARLY LEARNING CENTERSâ?? MISSION STATEMENT
Our mission is to inspire and enable the healthy development of all young children, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring members of the community. We strive to provide an age appropriate environment that will enhance the child physically, emotionally, socially, and mentally. To achieve this mission we have implemented a curriculum that is developmentally appropriate for each childâ??s needs and abilities.
The Early Learning Center provides opportunities for children to develop emotionally, socially and physically. We believe in an atmosphere in which each child is respected and free to experiment and investigate, free to have individual ideas, and free to master those ideas in a planned environment. Children learn the pleasures of doing things for themselves, and thus develop a positive self-concept. Our program sets limits to help children learn safety, value of property and respect for the rights of others. We do not attempt to bring about quick changes, rather we believe that with parent cooperation, positive learning experiences will establish a foundation for each childâ??s personal achievement.
PROGRAM GOALS FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES
The Center strives to present a program that will assist the family by:
â?¢ Providing children with an atmosphere that encourages a healthy and full life â?¢ Planning an environment of sound principals in early education and developmentâ?¢ Respecting a child as a developmental whole, and â?¢ Providing age appropriate growth and learning opportunities.
With these goals as the foundation of our philosophy, teachers are encouraged to utilize their creativity and expertise to enrich your childâ??s growth. The Early Learning Center is dedicated to providing the support and programming necessary for the excellent care, learning, and growth of your most precious gift: YOUR CHILD.
Our curriculum is designed to give children the opportunity to explore a wide range of developmentally appropriate activities within a warm and supportive environment. We believe that children who have been encouraged to develop a positive self-image (self-worth) will reach out and develop new skills at their own pace.
