CENTER PHILOSOPHY STATEMENT
Each child attending A Child’s View is a unique individual growing and developing in his/her own way and has the right to be treated as an individual. Opportunities are provided to facilitate the social, emotional, cognitive, and physical growth of each child. The center provides developmentally appropriate individual and group learning experiences that encourage creativity, independent choices, responsibility, self-control, and the development of a positive self-concept.
As we believe that children learn through play, the classroom schedule provides blocks of uninterrupted time to allow the child to choose an activity, create a plan, and follow the plan through to completion. Opportunities are provided for the child to grow in the areas of both independence and interdependence with others, to develop a trust of adults and children, to develop self-control, to use appropriate social skills, and to feel good about themselves. The Center seeks to provide opportunities for the child to develop their cognitive processes, to find avenues for creative expression, and to become physically competent.
The Center accepts children without regard to race, color, religion, sex or natural origin. The Center and the family use a team approach in working together to support children with special needs.
The Center will provide an exemplary program for the education of children ages 6 weeks through 12 years old and demonstrate developmentally appropriate practices in the areas of child development, early childhood education, and related disciplines.
