CENTER PHILOSOPHY – The Creative Difference
We are dedicated to early childhood education and give our full attention to the needs of all the children whom we care for and educate. We believe that the positive experiences of infants, toddlers and young children are critical to healthy development and that these experiences establish a foundation from which children can reach their full potential. We believe that children benefit from practices that are well grounded in childhood research, such as Jean Piaget (how children think and learn) and Erick Erikson (socio-emotional development). We also strive to maintain a program where children and families from all religious, racial and ethnic backgrounds will find an environment that embraces their similarities and differences.
