We believe that all children are unique individuals who learn through interaction between teachers, parents, other children and their own environment. Children actively participate in their own learning process by interacting with peers and teachers in an age and developmentally appropriate setting. Each child is given the opportunity to explore, experience and succeed and we encourage children to participate in all activities to the best of their abilities regardless of their abilities or special health care needs.
Our staff are Early Childhood professionals who create a caring, loving and learning atmosphere to enhance your child’s creativity and positive self-image. Through observation, information received from the parent and information from ISFP or IEP, if one is provided, the staff offers a balance of child initiated and teacher directed activities. These activities reflect the children’s interest, home language and cultural backgrounds. If children are not engaged, they are not learning.
We support an ongoing staff development program of continuing education and evaluation. Our staff is actively participating in the Maryland Child Care Credential Program. The center participates in EXCELS and Accreditation programs through the Maryland Department of Education.
We recognize and support parents as their children’s primary caregiver and educators. We strive to create a partnership between parents and our staff for the betterment of each child. Communication between parents and teacher is accomplished on a daily basis through verbal and written means and weekly communication folders (Flight Folders). Our doors are always open to parents and guardians.
