Day in the Life

General School Mission

Our success will be measured with each childâ??s growing self-esteem, with their social development, and by their love of learning and curiosity of their surrounding world.
Our reputation is being built by the Moms and Dads who are able to head to work, feeling comforted about the loving, supportive care their children receive at World Class Kids. Our approach to early childhood care is characterized by highly personalized caring and responsive interaction between our staff and children. It is our philosophy that early childhood education should be a time of fun, warmth, security, exploring, and discovery. Preschool children are creative and receptive and our staff will strive to nurture and encourage these qualities in the children who attend.

We will provide an atmosphere that encourages social, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth and development of the child as a whole. Our curriculum includes sharing and conversation time, stories, songs; creative art activities and crafts, games and large muscle activities; science and nature activities; exposure to shapes, colors, numbers and letters; and celebration of birthdays and holidays. Our programs are flexible and take into consideration that each child is unique in their temperament, learning style, interests and developmental capabilities.
