We believe that the evolvement of social, emotional and cognitive skills are of considerable importance to a child’s overall development. For this reason, we have incorporated into our program: experiences, activities and learning methods that will allow children to expand, investigate and nourish these skills.
Social interaction and play are primary factors to our philosophy. We view play as a prelude to the acquisition and understanding of developmental skills. We regard play as a very real and stimulative learning experience for children. Early Childhood research has proven that play is a very important factor to a child’s developmental needs. As often as possible, play will be incorporated into any learning experience that warrants this method of learning.
A healthy social attitude is another of our goals. Teacher and child relations should be warm, supportive and attuned to the child’s needs. Teachers and children, alike, will be responsible for respecting the rights of others. Social interaction between all involved in the classroom situation should be a pleasurable experience: a give and take effort that will generate a healthy social development to all children.
