In a warm, supportive, and respectful environment, the Child Development Center provides opportunities for children to grow and learn cognitively, physically, socially and emotionally as individuals and members of the group. Our philosophy is based on the concepts that knowledge is constructed by the child through her or his interactions with both the physical and social world. This concepts is central to the dynamics of our program because it puts the children, their ideas and explorations as the pivot point in the classroom. Thus, the environment says, “Yes, you can be successful.” The teacher’s role is to thoughtfully and responsively facilitate children’s interactions with their environment.
