Hill & Dale’s eclectic philosophy derives from our interaction with the theories and ideas of many theoreticians such as Dewey, Erickson, Bruner, Piaget, Blatz, Vygotsky, Adler, Maslow, Kohn, Brazelton and Greenspan and from the research of child development people that have expounded and interpreted these theories. We then interacted with real parents and children and developed our own philosophy.
We believe that the human being develops best in nurturing relationships; that there are stages of development; that emotions and feelings are what give this development and the living of life meaning and value; that the human being is an integrated whole that requires all of this; and that you cannot separate the parts but must relate to the whole person.
