Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Our quest for quality early education begins in our infant room and only ends when the time has come for the family to say goodbye and leave DCDC whether it is at preschool graduation, or when the child graduated from our school age program. First and foremost, we are educators, helping each child to discover the key to unlocking the world around them.

The children that we care for in our classrooms today are the same children who will be shaping this world tomorrow. We want to nurture their ability to think, dream, problem solve, ask, "what if?" We encourage children to reach beyond what they think they are capable of to try something new.

Learning becomes more relevant and meaningful when we are actively involved. We believe in engaging children in concrete, hands-on learning activities so that they can construct their own knowledge.

We strive to provide children with the materials, opportunities, and nurturing necessary to master the fundamental skills they need in all developmental areas: large and small muscle control, social and emotional skills, thinking, reasoning and communicating, to be successful in school, and more importantly, in life.
