Purpose and Objectives
The intent of our program is to encourage and support the development of each child and to provide opportunities for self exploration and discovery. It is our goal to provide children with a wholesome, well-balanced, secure social and educational situation, based on accepted principles and knowledge of human growth and development.
The overall development (cognitive, social, emotional, physical) of the child is considered and planned for through a variety of activities. It is our objective to learn the needs of the individuals in our program and to plan for the successful fulfillment of those needs. Positive development of the child's image of self is of prime importance in the program and is a priority in all aspects of program planning.
