Our mission is "To create a nurturing and safe learning environment through respect and love, for children, families, and peers." The Center offers a developmentally appropriate curriculum in the context of each child's cultural background. With attention to the physical, intellectual, social, and emotional needs of the child, planned activities promote mastery and social competence. We believe that learning should be a fun and joyous activity, one that will challenge and build a child's sense of self-worth and individuality. We respect children as unique individuals with the right to learn in a safe, healthy, nurturing environment at their own pace.
As children develop, the classroom schedule becomes more complex. Activities are organized into age-appropriate units. Unit topics range from dinosaurs to weather to ecology. The unit theme provides the vehicle for introducing language, math, and science. Monthly themes are planned in advance, and related activities provide the opportunities to share, explore, interact with others, and learn responsibility. Center -planned learning activities are used.
