This will be accomplished through a moral base educational Curriculum that provides the child the opportunity to learn through creative play, structured teaching, and through loving discipline to grow according to his/ her unique development. In addition, our mission is to provide a safe alternative for the working parents.
PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION:
We believe that children have a wonderful capacity to learn and are naturally inquisitive. If these natural qualities are guided in a positive educational direction then the child will be prepared for school and for life. Therefore, we adopt a Holistic approach for a child’s development. This approach recognizes that a child is a whole person. As a whole person the child will have the following basic needs: Physical, social, emotional, spiritual and mental. We further believe in a moral base educational curriculum that attempts to instill within the child a sense of right and wrong. We believe that all children have the innate capacity to learn. Therefore our curriculum is developed so that all learning domains are employed: Cognitive, psycho-motor, and affective.
Our staff is comprised of well qualified loving, professional teachers and administrators who are dedicated to the development and growth of young children. The blend of talent creativity and enthusiasm encapsulated in this group brings level of excitement to the program. In addition, staff are required to take continuing education courses in Early Childhood Education courses and are encouraged to participate in workshops, seminars, etc. our staff is committed to working together as a team to inclement our stated philosophy, goals, and objectives, to facilitate the development of each child and to ensure the overall success of the program.
