"Early Childhood Philosophy
Salem Early Childhood adheres to the philosophy of educating the "whole child" (spiritually, physically, emotionally, socially, and cognitively) in a developmentally appropriate classroom environment. Children are given the opportunity to learn and grow at their own rate, and in their own way. The classrooms have a relaxed atmosphere with special interest centers that invite the children to explore, experiment, discover and develop in a way unique to them. Children are encouraged to try out their ideas with emphasis on the process rather than the product. Emphasis of the program is planned, purposeful play that allows the children to learn from hands-on experiences; thus enhancing pre-reading, pre-language, and pre-math skills.
