A New Day Child Development Center's philosophy is to provide young children with many vital opportunities by providing them:
â€¢ The opportunity to be happy by fostering a warm and caring atmosphere which encourages creativity and success.
â€¢ The opportunity to feel secure by taking time to let them know that they are important and cared for.
â€¢ The opportunity to be challenged by activities that lead to problem solving in all areas (social, physical, & academic).
â€¢ The opportunity to be creative by providing materials, activities and guidance so that your child might develop individual talents to their fullest potential.
â€¢ The opportunity to experience success and be accepted by planning activities that are appropriate to your childâ€™s developmental level, by encouraging individual efforts.
A New Day CDC provides learning centers that provide practice in making decisions, following directions, working independently, and learning the care and use of materials. Children will have the opportunity to work and play in a variety of activities. The classroom contains educational toys, teaching games and materials related to the current unit of study, which the children may use individually, with a friend or in small groups.
A New Day CDC also plans group activities that will give your child a chance to learn in a small group setting. These group activities include stories, music and movement, language experiences and discussion of the current unit of study.
A New Day CDC offers field trips and first hand learning experiences. These experiences are usually related to the current unit of study, but they are also planned for variety and fun.
