Our philosophy is one of inclusion. This means that we will enroll children of any race, religion or creed. This also includes children with special needs / conditions or at-risk children. We believe all children deserve respect and a safe environment to play.
Young children need meaningful experiences. Young children can learn, want to learn and must learn. The evidence is convincing that the young years of a child's life set the stage for later life. The aim of our centre, in an age of rapid change, is to do what we can to help the children reach their full potential. The future demands self-confidence and an ability and desire to learn in order to cope with inevitable changes.
We hope to foster the children's intellectual development by guiding them in an awareness of all basic concepts. Every effort will be made to help build strong bodies and teach children how to care for their bodies. This will be accomplished by gross and fine motor activities. The staff will present themselves as good role models in practicing good health rules. Establishing goals for all children must come before attempting to make plans.
We will support children as they grow in independence, learning to function as capable individuals. The teacher decides how much help to give, allows the children to make decisions and choices and, at the same time, is responsible for helping each child reach a level of independence appropriate for him or her.
The child needs to learn to give and share as well as receive affection. Our centre offers security and love. The child needs to learn to get along with others. His/her experiences will be happy and the staff will protect him/her until he/she is ready for social relationships.
A child needs to learn self-control. The staff works towards the child becoming self-disciplined, self-guided, and self-directed. Each is helped to learn certain behavior responses and the reasons for them.
The child needs to begin to understand and control his/her physical world. Our programs is designed to arouse curiosity, thinking, reasoning, gathering and using information. The children will be provided experiences that will encourage learning and make it meaningful.
Children need to create. Our aim is to provide an atmosphere of freedom which is so important if the child is to develop her/his creative potential. Children are encouraged to try new ways of using materials as we enjoy the unique and spontaneous manner with which the child uses his/her imagination.
Our goal is that every child in our Day Care Centre will live a happy childhood and reach his/her full potential to become happy, full functioning adults.
