Our philosophy is influenced by the teachings of developmentally appropriate practices where children thrive when given time to ask questions, test theories and explore topics that interest them, reading, writing, math, science and social development is taught through play. Teacher takes much care in planning curriculum to stay within the child’s interest zone. Some of the activities are student led and others are teacher led.
We also believe that emotional development is the core of proper whole development. We have familiarized ourselves with the concepts practiced in nonviolent parenting which stresses the importance of emotional intelligence. We implement emotional support and validation throughout the day in our program. We do not “discipline” our children instead we use redirection. We work together to find a solution to a problem that is not benefiting our center as a whole. Conflict resolution is done is a way where there is never a victim and a perpetrator. We do not shame or give our children time outs. We believe that every behavior has meaning and we work hard to give children proper tools to cope. We use, “All behavior is a person’s best attempt to meet a basic need.” As our mantra, we are here to help children understand the meaning behind their actions and give them more socially acceptable tools to getting their needs met.
We emphasize community. We recognize that parents are a child’s 1st teacher; therefore, we work with families as partners in supporting the children’s complete development. We work as one unit and try to maintain consistency throughout the children’s lives.
Milestones prides it self on offering an anti bias curriculum, one that recognizes and celebrates diversity. We talk about all kinds of cultures, family units and lifestyles. We celebrate all people and value each individual and their respective abilities. We believe that if children are to grow up with the attitudes, knowledge and skills necessary for living in a complex, diverse world we must enable and empower them to be confident in their self identity and just in their interactions
The owner, Milena Bice, is truly gifted, amazing with children. They are in the business of enhancing children's lives and supporting parents through this process. I am a better mother and all together human being today, because of the lovely families we've been a part of in the past 6 years at Milestones.
