We respect each child as an individual with the potential for growth and learning. We provide loving care and we nurture each child's self-worth. We offer many choices for the children. We treat the children with respect. We listen as well as talk to the children. We offer an environment with a variety of experiences. We believe in a child-centered model of care giving. A developmentally appropriate curriculum shall be planned in advance to reflect our program's philosophy and goals for the children. A weekly curriculum shall be posted for parent's to review. A daily schedule of children's daily activities will be posted or otherwise made available to parents. The daily activities guide will provide the following: indoor/outdoor time, activity time (quiet and active), group time (small, large and individual), large muscle/small muscle, staff initiated/child initiated. Each child shall have their own primary care space to offer security and continuity in the program.
