Children’s Center Philosophy of Learning
We recognize each child as a unique individual with unlimited potential. We value the rights of each child as a member of our community, validating their thoughts, ideas, and beliefs. We encourage children to exercise their right to make a choice in situations that don’t endanger themselves or others, focusing on safety, property, and rights.
We believe that children learn best through play and hands on experiences provided throughout each day. We value social and emotional learning; defined as the ability to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. We know that social and emotional learning is the foundation of all other learning so we focus our energy on developing each child’s social and emotional competence. We believe in the value of the family-school connection and know that parents are a child’s first and best teacher. We strive to work collaboratively with family members to ensure the success of their child in early childhood and beyond.
Full-time care: The child has a space in the classroom and can use this space at any time from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Breakfast, lunch and snack served.
