Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"It is the aim of the Oberlin Early Childhood Center staff to care for children and their families within an environment that provides a strong sense of security and emotional support while upholding standards set by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. The individual needs and interests of each child are taken into consideration while fostering a sense of independence and learning through play. Oberlin Early Childhood Center considers a child's potential growth in the social, emotional, language, intellectual, creative and physical domains. Varied community and professional resources support our program. It is our goal to respect the diversity of families and to support them as partners in the task of nurturing their children.
