Philosophy:

The Blueberry Fields Child Care believes that home-based environment offers children a unique opportunity to interact with a small group of children, develop a personal relationship with the staff or caregiver, and receive individualized care in a small group type setting. Children learn best in an environment where they feel safe and valued.

Through play, the child is best able to explore, learn and grow. Play is an important vehicle for children’s development in all areas: cognitive, language, emotional, social skills, fine and gross motor development.

Positive reinforcement is an effective tool in guiding children through their play. Giving positive reinforcement guides children in learning the appropriate skills and behaviors.

We believe that each child is unique and has a natural curiosity that is nurtured through an integrated play based approach that will ensure that his/her full potential is challenged and developed.

We believe that by encouraging family input through open and ongoing communication with families we can enhance each child’s experience.

Parents have their own values and emotional needs which should also help to determine the kind of care they choose for their child. With family input through open communication we can enhance each child's experience. As partners in caring for their children, we appreciate open communication with each family; we share responsibility to ensure the health, safety, well-being, comfort and development of each child.

Staff are selected for their qualifications and expertise in the early childhood field. We pride ourselves on the quality of our care and the warm and secure learning environment we provide. Quality childcare requires well-trained staff, and we believe that childcare teachers are advocates for quality childcare for the child.
