From the Director:
We believe...that children learn through play. Children naturally learn through what they see in the world. Teachers create a developmentally appropriate environment for each child to play, create, move, experiment, and express themselves. Children are active learners and have opportunities for choice, independence, and learning through play with real materials in hands-on direct ways. Childrenâ??s activities, materials and classroom curriculum are selected based on individual childrenâ??s development: socially, emotionally, physically, spiritually, and intellectually. Children are provided a balance of indoor and outdoor time, active and quiet play and individual, small and large groupings. Children need routine and continuity in the classroom and with adults. We create consistency in the classroom through predictable schedules, activities, and by limiting transitions and enrichment activities.
