We believe children should be in small intimate groupings with a primary caregiver, where they can build trusting relationships in order to feel secure enough to explore the world around them. Caregivers should be supportive, sensitive and interested observers, using those observations as an ongoing process so that children can be given the opportunities to succeed at their own level of development. We believe children are explorers.
Play is the way children make sense of their world and is the natural way to learn. Play is self initiated, spontaneous and an opportunity for children to use their curiosity to explore, experiment, and test ideas.
We strive to provide an environment which contains materials that are stimulating, challenging, changing, varied, familiar, and loved. We provide an environment that encourages different kinds of play, such as: construction, role playing, movement, problem solving, discovering, communicating, creating and imagining.
