Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

" At Buffalo State College Child Care Center, we believe each child is a unique individual. We are sensitive to their social, emotional, intellectual, and physical needs. We provide developmentally appropriate programs that focus on the process of learning and help children enjoy successful experiences. We encourage not just learning, but the love of learning.
We believe in providing a physical environment that is safe, clean, healthy and oriented to children. Classrooms are arranged to offer challenging play and learning choices at a range of developmental levels. Learning centers allow children the opportunity to explore, to experience, and most succeed.
The strength of our program is the dedication of our staff. We support the teachers with training, resources, and freedom to create a unique learning experience for children. We provide many opportunities for the teachers to share ideas and grow professionally. Our teachers create a caring and nurturing atmosphere and foster each child's creativity and positive self-image.
We believe in positive methods of disciple. We establish consistent, and appropriate limits to help children function in their world. Our programs are designed to develop in children a sense of independence and responsibility. We strive to strengthen each child's own cultural identity, while instilling a respect for others.
Parents are the most significant adults in a child's life. We strive to create mutual respect between parents and teachers - a partnership for the benefit of the child. We encourage daily communication between parents and center staff. Our doors are open to parents at all times.
Our organization values people: the children in our care, their parents, adn our employees. We continually work to earn the trust placed in us. We strive each day to be the best provider of early childhood educational services we possibly can."
