The JLDH Board of Directors and staff feel that a developmentally appropriate program of high quality should be available to all children and their families. Such a program should provide activities for each child, based on his or her age and developmental level and should be tailored to meet the needs of the child rather than expecting the child to adjust to the demands of a specific program. It is important that knowledge of growth and development be applied to program practices and that staff be responsive to individual differences. Childrens play is important to intellectual, physical, emotional and social growth. Therefore, child-initiated teacher-supported play is an essential part of our program.
We recognize the importance of adults as role models of acceptable behavior. Children begin to pattern their own ways of acting and reacting after that of the adults they are with each day. We believe the program staff should explore values that promote a sense of self-worth and respect for the childs own rights as well as the rights of others. We feel this can best be done by providing an atmosphere of acceptance, warmth, and understanding in a safe, nurturing environment. We feel that it is important to develop a program which is sensitive to the needs of children and responsive to the concerns of their family.
