OUR PHILOSOPHY OF QUALITY CARE:
We will strive to provide a safe, loving, comfortable, stimulating, fun educational environment for play and growth in early education, self-esteem and character in our home with a semi-structured day plan. Activities will include free playtime, structured playtime, large motor skill playtime, small motor skills activities, story time and arts and crafts, music and dance activities, and other educational yet fun activities. I will also provide nutritious meals and snacks, and encourage good personal hygiene skills and manners.
A HP computer will be available for all ages to use, but under supervision. Television programs will be pre screened to be appropriate for even the youngest viewers.
Through a mixture of guided and undirected creative play, children in my care will have the opportunity to learn about color, shapes, textures, numbers, letters, animals, seasons, feelings, senses, nutrition, personal hygiene, manners, basic science and math concepts, and creative concepts such as “pretend” play art, music, drama, and dance.
These may sound like lofty goals for infants, toddlers and preschoolers, but children can learn all of these things and more through creative play. We do not believe in pushing any child to learn at an accelerated rate, and will not make a child feel pressured to achieve any developmental milestones. By providing the right kind of fun safe environment, we believe that children will learn at their own appropriate pace.
