Our program curriculum is based on current best practices and research and we believe in the development of the whole child. Therefore, it is designed to focus on the social, emotional, creative, physical and cognitive developmental domains and is constructed in order to promote exploration, critical thinking, cooperative play and mutual respect.
In order for our staff members to meet success in promoting competency and developmental progress in each child, family involvement is encouraged and supported.
We believe that:
? the parent is the childs first teacher and we are here to offer them support
? the development of children occurs in a relatively orderly sequence, with later abilities, skills and knowledge building on those already established
? development proceeds in predictable directions toward greater complexity, organization and internalization
? development proceeds at varying rates from child to child as well as within different areas of each individual childs functioning
? development and learning occur in and are influenced by multiple social contexts
