Philosophy & Approach

General School Mission

"The purpose of The Child Care Center in Norwich is to meet the needs of enrolled preschool children while parents pursue work, educational programs and other interests. The philosophy of The Child Care Center in Norwich is that preschool children learn best by actively exploring their environment and natural surroundings. The staff, therefore, strive to create an environment which is nurturing, stimulating and designed to encourage children's active participation. Programs are designed by age groupings as well as mixed ages with attention given to the particular needs of the individual child. The Child Care Center in Norwich recognizes its legal obligation to report to the Division of Social Services in VT or the Department of Health and Human Services in NH any suspected abuse or neglect of enrolled children.

A Typical Day

"Our day begins with warm welcomes to our classroom with free play or projects awaiting the children. AM snack is at 9:00 followed by outside play, art projects, music, Roll Call, stories or free play. Lunch is at 11:00 with naptime from 12:00 to 2:00. Afternoon is, again, outside play, projects, music, stories or free play with a snack at 3:00. Our plans for the day often change depending upon what the interests or temperament of the particular group are. Very often a project or activity is totally spontaneous and originates with something a child might do or tell us about or bring in. "Flexibility" and "two year olds" go hand and hand.
