The program strives to be a model of quality child care for our diverse community by:

  • Providing a responsive environment where children and adults feel supported and free to explore materials, ideas and feelings;
  • Fostering healthy self-esteem in each individual by respecting the individual’s needs, abilities, personality, and culture;
  • Fostering the development of each child’s social-emotional, cognitive, language, physical, and creative abilities through the use of developmentally appropriate activities and practices;
  • Providing a safe, clean environment that promotes safety, healthy practices, and an appreciation for nutritious food;
  • Working in partnership with parents to ensure that children are receiving the highest quality of care; and
  • Working closely with the child development department to ensure that adult students are developing the skills needed to provide quality care for children.
