Day Care Philosophy
The program is planned and conducted by staff who is trained to meet the developmental needs of children and who will provide positive adult models. The staff has the responsibility to provide an educationally rich environment that offers a variety of opportunities for a child to learn. The staff must also provide a safe, supportive, nurturing environment where a child can feel secure, loved, and at ease with adults and peers. The program is designed to supplement and support the childs experiences at home and at school by offering a well-balanced program planned with the input of the children, childs parents, the childs teachers, and professionals in the school-age child care field. Supervised homework sessions will be provided at the request of students, parents, or teachers.
The primary activity will be play, meaning that, within reason, students will be given optimum opportunity to make choices and to pursue their own activities and ideas at their own pace. Through play, each child will be exposed to and will be able to explore new areas of interest. They will develop creativity, will learn problem-solving skills, will grow in independence, will make plans and implement them, and will grow in skills by learning to cooperate with and to provide support to others. Every effort will be made to have each child feel accepted and, in turn, to accept others. Through active, outdoor motor skills and play, children will have the opportunity to relieve stress, develop coordination, and improve the neurological functions that impact perceptual skills.
Recognizing that each child is unique, and each child and each childs family may have special aspirations for the individual participants time in the program, the staff will seek student and parent input into total program planning as well as make themselves available for conferences with students and parents, upon request.
