As educators, we use creative ways to motivate and help with each child’s development as we encourage interplay among social, emotional, cognitive and physical growth. Along with this, we recognize that each child develops at his and her own pace.
In this process, we must also identify ways to work with other community agencies and organizations to effectively address family needs and to encourage parents to participate in the learning process.
We work collectively, using all available resources to educate the children who come to our program. Some of these resources may center around the development of ethnic pride and the awareness of the diverse cultures in our community. There are many avenues of learning to discover and foster that occur at home, in school, and in the community. As we uncover these paths of learning, our main objective and commitment is to educate and to develop the total child.
