General School Mission

At Children of The Woodlands, we provide a learning environment that allows a child to build upon existing skills. Children accommodate new information by interacting with concrete materials and experiencing the environment through their senses. Curiosity is an important method of learning for young children. Children can learn best when they are given the opportunity to ask questions and find different solutions to a problem. Repetition and Imitation are necessary for learning to occur. As children repeat actions, songs, words, and routines, they increase skills and understanding. Children observe and imitate others who model attitudes and actions. At Children of The Woodlands, we provide an atmosphere where a child feels loved and accepted, as a special person created by God. Parents and teachers working together can support each other in providing positive learning experiences for our children. When this is accomplished, we both can look forward to the promise of Proverbs 22:6 (NIV)"train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it." Children experience God's love and a sense of self-worth through love and acceptance. Children of The Woodlands recognizes each child as a unique and special person with the potential to grow and learn. Our developmentally appropriate environment is designed to provide learning opportunities for a wide spectrum of abilities. Depending on facilities and resources, we make every effort to accommodate special needs. In certain instances a child may require an aide to "shadow" them throughout the school day; this aide must be provided at the parent's expense. Children of The Woodlands reserves the right to request a formal professional diagnosis in order to better serve our students. Because providing the best possible care for all our students is a high priority, a copy of the results should be mailed directly from the specialist to the director within seven working days of the diagnosis.
