Our goal is to support children by promoting self-confidence, curiosity, self-control, and communication skills. We believe that children learn and grow by experiencing their surroundings through their senses and social interactions, by physically moving around and being cared for by loving, attentive adults. We focus on language and literacy development; cultural and human relations (sharing, taking turns); developing gross motor skills (balls, riding toys, mats); and fine motor skills (manipulating objects, puzzles, crayons, painting).
We believe it is important to establish daily routines and schedules. Routines and schedules are necessary so that children know what to expect and understand what is expected of them. Our schedule offers a range of different types of activities including: active and quiet time, large/small group activities, time to play alone or with others, indoor and outdoor playtimes, and time for children to select their own activities and for teacher-directed activities. Our schedule promotes consistency but allows for flexibility.
