About us

Our program is built around the concept that every child is capable of learning in their own way and at their own pace. As caregivers we strive to create an environment that is safe, stimulating, and encouraging so that learning is natural. The following principles are excerpts from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAYCE), and serve as the foundation of our curriculum: 

All the domains of development and learning—physical, social and emotional, and cognitive—are important, and they are closely interrelated. Children’s development and learning in one domain influence and are influenced by what takes place in other domainsMany aspects of children’s learning and development follow well-documented sequences, with later abilities, skills, and knowledge building on those already acquired.Development and learning proceed at varying rates from child to child, as well as at uneven rates across different areas of a child’s individual functioning.Development and learning result from a dynamic and continuous interaction of biological maturation and experience.Early experiences have profound effects, both cumulative and delayed, on a child’s development and learning; and optimal periods exist for certain types of development and learning to occurDevelopment proceeds toward greater complexity, self-regulation, and symbolic or representational capacities.Children develop best when they have secure, consistent relationships with responsive adults and opportunities for positive relationships with peers.Development and learning occur in and are influenced by multiple social and cultural contextsAlways mentally active in seeking to understand the world around them, children learn in a variety of ways; a wide range of teaching strategies and interactions are effective in supporting all these kinds of learningPlay is an important vehicle for developing self-regulation as well as for promoting language, cognition, and social competence.Development and learning advance when children are challenged to achieve at a level just beyond their current mastery, and when they have many opportunities to practice newly acquired skillsChildren’s experiences shape their motivation and approaches to learning, such as persistence, initiative, and flexibility; in turn, these dispositions and behaviors affect their learning and development.
