Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Every child is different and grows in contrasting ways, and all construct knowledge at various points in time. Therefore, we know that development is individual and our program will be focused on meeting each of their needs.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

At Our House Creative Family Childcare, we believe in guiding children through a developmentally appropriate curriculum, in all areas of
education.

Our enriching program is cognitively and linguistically appropriate, where authentic learning experiences are the main focus. It is socially stimulating, where children are working with others and where ideas and thoughts are shared.

This program is also emotionally supportive, set in a safe environment and dedicated to each child’s well-being.

We understand that children don’t just love to play, but rather it helps develop who they will become. As caregivers, we believe it is our responsibility to give guidance to help children learn to grow. Every child is different and grows in contrasting ways, and all construct knowledge at various points in time. Therefore, we know that development is individual and our program will be focused on meeting each of their needs.

We want children, as well as parents, to feel comfortable and know that Our House is a "home away from home!"

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

Parents are free to communicate with us about any questions, concerns, or ideas they may have in order for us to better serve their children and meet their needs. We have an open-door policy, which allows parents to drop-in at the day care if they wish to see their child/children. Parents may talk with us when they drop-off or pick up their child, or they may call us with any questions they may have. Though we don't have parent-teacher conferences, if there is a particular concern we can schedule a time to meet.
