The Center staff believes primarily that we can facilitate the development
of self-esteem within each child we serve through our expression of respect, acceptance, and
comfort for them. We foster each childs development of self-control and plan for increasing
independence as they acquire skills.
Our staff provides a developmentally appropriate curriculum to serve the age span of children
within each group and with respect to the different needs, interests, and developmental levels of
those individual children. Our program is based on the High/Scope Curriculum, which effectively
combines sound educational theory with developmentally appropriate experiences. The
cornerstone of High/Scopes early childhood curriculum is active learning composed of personal,
hands-on experiences children have with people and things. The curriculum is designed to
promote the development of physical, social, emotional, and cognitive skills through a variety
of fun activities and enriched play opportunities.
