Aside from a safe and healthy environment, the most important aspect of quality child care is an atmosphere that is comforting and enjoyable for the children as well as the care givers. We strive to provide every child with a level of care and comfort that will help him or her to be relaxed and ready for learning. Through a home like environment, we are able to provide developmentally appropriate activities that are challenging but not overwhelming and thus foster optimal growth for a well rounded early childhood experience.
Play and exploration are key factors in the learning process for young children. Through hands-on experiences, children develop their natural curiosity of the world around them. Learning and laughing are what life is all about for a pre-schooler. At Little House, the emphasis is on learning through fun!
An effective teacher understands that teaching is an art-form. An artist is able to recognize the inherent beauty in his materials and harmonize the unique qualities for others to appreciate. As such, we believe that a child is Gods most spectacular creation. We do not attempt to form or mold the child, rather, our goal is to foster the childs inner beauty while helping him develop the confidence necessary to handle the types of situations that he will eventually face on his own.
Because children learn what they live, it is essential that care givers model acceptable behavior. When treated with respect, patience, love and understanding, children will learn to take on these qualities for themselves. It is our concern for the well-being of future generations that inspires us to pass on positive attitudes and personal qualities through any means possible. Christian values and spiritual growth are fostered through the use of childrens bibles stories, Christian songs, holiday celebrations, and community service projects.
At Little House, we understand that your child is one of the most important people in your life. Please remember that your childs day care teacher is one of the most important people in his or her life.
