Our Philosophy - The Building Blocks of our Program
As Early Childhood Education advocates, our mission is to promote and support the welfare of children and their families in our society. The purpose of our program is to provide a helping hand that nurtures the children in their environment as they grow physically, socially, emotionally, and intellectually. Each child's individual needs are recognized and we place value in their unique gifts. This meaningful learning environment provides the opportunity for our teachers to light the spark that ignites the curiosity for educating the "whole child."
We believe that children are unique, exciting people who can each contribute worth to our society. In order for children to feel their own self-worth, they must feel positive about their actions and be confident in their everyday surroundings. It is our goal to bring about a sense of well-being for each child so he or she can perform and feel competent in their world. Our teachers help the children feel successful by supporting and understanding their individual differences. We will do this by providing a warm and well-ordered environment in which children can grow at their own pace.
We believe that children learn best through play- a medium that is most natural to them. Through play, children learn how to socialize and handle life situations. Children engage in the learning process through teacher-directed activities and hands-on manipulatives. Motivation is the key that opens up these doors of learning and we do this by capturing the imagination and attention of the children. Our teachers prepare the classroom so that children can learn through active exploration and exposure. It is our intent to build curiosity and motivation for learning through a stimulating harmonious environment, challenging age appropriate activities, and reinforcement through praise and recognition. It is our belief that parents can meet the commitments of their busy days anxiety- free because we are providing such a wonderful foundation of learning for their child.
"Tell me and I'll forget;
Show me and I may remember;
Involve me and I'll understand."
