Curriculum Philosophy

We recognize play as a child’s natural way of learning. Play is the child’s process of exploring, identifying, negotiating, taking risks, and creating meaning. Play must be a fundamental component of early childhood care and education. We use a child’s discovered interests observed through play to develop age-appropriate classroom curricula. A child’s eventual transition to kindergarten and later schooling is best served through child-centered, play-based learning combined with a degree of age-appropriate, organized, didactic, structured learning.

Our Values

Observe, Listen, Understand, and Assist

Focus on Every Child Every Day
