Our philosophy of education is based on the values we hold for children. We believe children need to be with teachers who:

  • Have sound knowledge of child growth and development.
  • See early childhood as a unique and valuable stage in the process of human development.
  • View children as individuals and respond to each one's unique needs.
  • Strive to be fair to all children.
  • Understand that families significantly influence a child's behavior.
  • Have developed cultural competence and value each child's family and culture.
  • Build mutually respectful partnerships with families.
  • Are able to help children gain control of their own behavior.
  • Encourage children to express their feelings in appropriate ways.
  • Have a good understanding of how children learn best.
  • Can plan, implement and evaluate developmentally appropriate curriculum.
  • Provide materials and support for exploration and experimentation.
  • Value play as one of the most important experiences in early childhood.
  • Instill a positive attitude toward learning and are curious and interesting themselves.
  • Encourage children to express themselves through creative experiences.
  • Are aware of the relationships between physical health, mental health and cognitive development.
  • Enjoy the time they spend with children and delight in their gains toward autonomy and initiative.
  • Relate well to other adults.\
  • See themselves as professionals and life-long learners.
