We believe that each child is entitled to a supervised, safe, secure, and nurturing environment when separated from his/her parent(s). Furthermore, we believe that such an environment is preferable to self care during non-school hours. We believe that this time is important for developing social skills and pursuing interests, as well as, being a release from the structure of the school day.
We believe that a high quality Child Care Program is maintained through: a) interaction among staff and children b) curriculum, c) staff-parent interaction, d) staff qualification and development, e) administration, f) staffing, g) physical environment, h) health and safety, i) nutrition and food service, and j) evaluation.
We believe that children in self care are at risk; therefore, we believe in providing a convenient service which will result in strengthening families. Furthermore, we believe that providing this service falls within the realm of our public and social responsibility. We recognize the love, interest, and concern of each parent for the child and support active involvement by the parent in the Program.
