Play is the cornerstone to our educational philosophy. It has purpose and meaning to children and is a major avenue for development and learning. Teachers strive to make learning fun by using play situations to help children relate to concepts and ideas. For instance, blocks are used to introduce such math concepts as more than, higher than, and smaller than all terms which have clear and concrete meaning for children. Learning this way is fun and engaging, and it allows teachers to create a classroom atmosphere that buzzes and bubbles with delight.
In designing our programs, three goals are paramount:
1. Help child and parent adjust as the child makes the transition from the security of home to a small group setting.
2. Provide a warm atmosphere where a child can eagerly participate.
3. Develop a trusting relationship between child, parent and teacher.
