The educational philosophy behind our curriculum is based on the fundamental principle that learning is meant to be a natural, joyful experience. A stimulating environment that is stable, safe, healthy and comfortable is crucial for a positive and successful learning experience. We believe all children will flourish when allowed to play, explore and experiment while the process of discovery is encouraged and reinforced with enthusiasm. Positive guidance techniques establish consistent, age appropriate limits that help our children function in their world and develop a sense of independence, social competence, confidence and responsibility. Approaching each child as a unique individual who develops at his or her own rate, we provide developmentally appropriate activities that balance between social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development. Our program goals for each developmental area are:
To help children feel comfortable in the classroom, trust their new environment, make friends, and feel they are part of a group.
To help children experience pride and self-confidence; develop independence and self-control, and have a positive attitude towards life.
To help children become inquisitive and confident learners by letting them test their own ideas, overcome obstacles to experience success, and by helping them acquire learning skills such as the ability to solve problems, ask questions, and use words to describe ideas, observations, and feelings.
To help children increase their large and small muscle skills, enjoy physical exercise, and feel confident about what their bodies can do.
