We have a primary caregiver model at Old Firehouse School. Children have one caregiver who develops a nurturing special relationship with the child and the childs family. The two great child psychologists John Bowlby and Erik Erikson teach us that in the first few years of life children learn to trust or mistrust that their significant others will be reliable and able to meet their needs appropriately. Children carry the lesson they learn about the nature of trust with them for the rest of their lives. For this reason we strive for continuity of care here. As much as possible our children will have the same primary caregiver for their stay with us. We choose staff who understand the importance of their relationships with children.
