The Children’s Learning Centers take the approach that children learn by doing. We provide learning opportunities through various multi-sensory learning and interest centers that use carefully selected equipment and cognitively focused educational materials. Children are encouraged to develop habits of observation by learning to create, question, listen, experiment, make discoveries, express their feelings, and make decisions. Learning happens incidentally and informally. We believe that the process of learning is more important than the product. Thus, we make an effort to continually challenge the children with specific learning experiences which also allows for individual interests and abilities to emerge. We take a positive approach in providing a non-sexist, non-violent and non-authoritarian environment. We hope that each child will become independent and learn how to solve problems while expanding his or her readiness skills. By providing social experiences and emotional support, children will develop positive self-esteem, self-confidence and independence. Staff members foster this by guiding them through activities that support their efforts, allowing them to take risks and learn from their mistakes, and encourage them to achieve accomplishments on their own.
We have a strong commitment to multi-cultural, anti-bias care and education that promotes respect for all people regardless of differences in race, culture, sexual orientation, language, socio-economic level, age, health, physical and mental ability, religion, political views or family structure. As part of our educational philosophy of respecting each child’s culture and background, the centers have the wonderful opportunity to not only affirm children’s identities, but also further explore and celebrate a wide variety of cultural, racial, and ethnic differences.
