Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The Child Development Center's programs are based on the philosophy that children develop best when adults and caregivers emphasize the total development of the child. We believe that children are active learners and unique individuals. They learn in a developmental sequence, progressing at their own pace. We value the contributions that cultural, racial, and socio-economic diversity, special needs, and gender differences bring to the program and to the development of children. Children are best served in integrated settings where attitudes of understanding and acceptance can be fostered. The integrated setting should be arranged to stimulate the acquisition of competencies in communicative, cognitive, social, emotional, and physical skills"
