"The overall goal of the program is to provide a constantly stable and nurturing setting where children can learn how to trust and socialize, while being free to develop at their own pace.
Learning, for young children, takes place quite intrinsically through play, hands-on and academic experiences.
This 'developmental interaction' approach forms the cornerstone of our program. A thoughtfully planned day at C.A.D.S is designed to provide the appropriate number of choices within a comfortable yet ordered, environment.
Throughout the day at C.A.D.S., emphasis is placed on helping children acquire skills that enable them to deal with a variety of situations. Our primary aim is to guide them to become aware of relationships that will ultimately lead to the power of abstract thinking.
The importance of the social interactions that the children encounter within their day are a valuable part of their education and provide opportunities for learning about living in a world where people need to get along." (SOURCE: www.childrensallday.org)
