Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The purpose of Home Ties Child Care and Development Center is to provide a program for children that is a comfortable transition from home. This includes creating a child-centered program and environment where nurturing staff and children's daily routines are combined to enhance the growth and development of each child as an individual. Activities, expectations, and rooms reflect planning that encourage children to experience, interact, and enjoy their time away from family. At Home Ties, children have a variety of activities that are educational and that enhance their social, emotional, and physical growth as a person. These activities are planned and implemented by staff with specific education and training in young children's services."
