Emotional Development

We will encourage opportunities to make choices, to exhibit self-control, engage in problem solving, to foster acceptance of responsibility, and to utilize creative expression (through art, music, dramatic play, etc.)

Intellectual Development

 will have learning opportunities to help expand a child’s background of knowledge through the five senses and “hands-on” experiences, learn through discovery and inquiry methods, develop a love for learning, provide a challenge, and develop good work habits.

Social Development

Each child may play/work in a small group as he makes choices, begins to learn to take turns (share), care for self and belongings, grow in his relationship with others, learns to accept limits, respects rights, feelings, and property of others, and use good manners.
