PHILOSOPHY OF OUR CHILDCARE PROGRAMS
LEARNING THROUGH PLAY
Our centers provide an environment where children have the opportunity to learn. Your child was born with a natural curiosity, which makes him/her want to touch, taste, see, smell and hear everything. Since play is the natural way that every child learns, it is one of the most effective methods of teaching…our method of teaching. Through play, your child’s curiosity is stimulated. He/she is encouraged to explore, imitate, manipulate and master the surrounding environment. The center prides itself on providing your child with a safe and caring environment.
Our programs give your child the opportunity to participate in a variety of age- and developmentally-appropriate activities. Included in our programs is the opportunity for children to learn about different cultures by participating in a variety of traditional cultural events and holiday celebrations. Through these experiences, a positive self-image is reinforced and a foundation for strong cognitive and social skills is formed.
In our early childhood programs, our curriculum is based on themes that incorporate language, math, science, social studies, small/large motor skills, art, music and cooking activities. The daily schedule consists of alternating periods of individual, small group, large group, structured and non-structured time, both indoors and out of doors. It is always a pleasure to see children learning while forming new friendships. When appropriate, we will take field trips or bring in special enrichment programs to complement our programming. Curriculum may vary with the individual needs of the children in a given room or that week’s specific theme.
