Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Hopscotch is a state licensed childcare and learning center. By choosing a program that has the highest standard of care, you have chosen a great future for your child. As a parent, you can feel safe and worry free in an environment such as ours. There is far more closeness between caregiver and child than there is in a larger group setting. This closeness gives your child a sense of security that is very important to their development and self-esteem. We work
together with our families to make the first five years are the most important years in your child's life.

Hopscotch believes that every child is unique and special. In creating our program, we have designed activities to provide for a young child's cognitive, physical, social, and emotional needs. Experimentation, creativity, and discovery are all encouraged in a safe and healthy environment where your child will feel that each experience is a happy one. Our program also recognizes that each child has individual needs and has the right to grow and develop at his or her own rate. We strive to meet these needs of each individual child. Our program
emphasizes the individualization of each and every child. Multi-aged programs have been developed for each child's cognitive and social growth. In this program, your child will begin to learn and understand the basic concepts that will help your child develop through his or her life. In this type of program, children can learn and develop from each other. We encourage the children to develop self-helping and self-coping skills. This encouragement helps the children to develop skills needed throughout life. The children will gain awareness of other people's feelings and to understand how their actions affect
others. All children are taught to respect other people's possessions and work. Children will be encouraged to resolve their own conflicts with each other by talking through their feelings and finding their own solutions. The days are planned, in advance, with educated activities thru fun, to fulfill each day with new learning experiences."
