Child Development

The Child & Family Care Center is based on the child development model that incorporates the theories of Piaget, Montessori, Erikson, and others. Learning through play is viewed as the cornerstone of the curriculum.

Children are free to choose from age-appropriate activities including: art; music; language development; pre-math skills; science and nature; and dramatic play. Children develop self-esteem, independence and problem-solving skills as they make choices and assist in planning the environment and activities.

Our primary goal is that children will feel safe and secure. Prior to being independent, children must know that they can depend on adults and that they can depend on having a predictable environment.
