It is the goal of the Children’s Center to provide a warm, secure environment that promotes a child’s unique development. Our program is child-oriented, meaning we focus on assisting children in learning through play and exploration of their environment. Our lessons are developmentally appropriate and individualized to support each child’s unique development.
We meet the developmental needs of children in our center through indoor/outdoor activities, quiet and active times as well as individual and group activities. These experiences include music, mathematics, science, computer, manipulatives, physical exercise and social interaction. Enhancing each child’s self concept during their time in the center is a major goal.
At the Children’s Center we use the Creative Curriculum, a research-based, nationally recognized curriculum designed to meet the developing needs of each child in our program. Our classrooms are divided into centers art/music, blocks, dramatic play, sand/water
