Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

We believe in providing a meaningful learning experience for each individual. We assess children's development, and based on areas of need, make adjustments or additions to our curriculum. In some circumstances we also work with the families to bring in help from someone with more specialized training in a particular area.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

At the Circle C Child Development Center, we believe that children's earliest experiences have a tremendous impact on their development. We respect parents as the primary and most important provider of care and nurturing, and we believe parents and teachers are partners in children's care and education. Our program is designed to meet the developmental needs of young children. It provides experiences that enrich and enhance each child's cognitive, language, social, emotional, physical and creative development. The members of our staff serve as positive role models and provide care that is supportive, nurturing, warm and responsive to each child's individual needs.
