Philosophy of Our Program
Our program is designed to provide age-appropriate quality child care for children. The primary focus of the program is to provide a nurturing and quality educational experience for young children. This is supplemented by nutrition, health and family services.
The program’s philosophy, as it applies to the methods advocating for the adult/ child interaction, is based upon a confluent model encompassing theories of Jean Piaget (cognitive Development) and Erik Erikson (social/ emotional development).
The programs goals encourage the development of the whole child by providing a variety of rich, first-hand experiences. The objectives used to reach the program’s primary goals include encouraging children to talk about experiences and by supporting the children’s inquiries through encouragement of questions and assistance to the children as they seek their own solutions.
Children are encouraged to investigate and be inquisitive. They receive support in their efforts to explore and wonder in order to create enthusiasm for learning. The program provides this kind of early stimulation by fostering knowledge about the world, thus adding to the child’s sense of security and confidence. This promotes more extensive networks of association that children can bring to later schooling.
The curriculum is flexible and geared towards the children’s interests.
