One question most, if not all parents ask is “What will my child be doing in my classroom?”
Well simply, this year your child will be learning many new things about the world around them and playing with many new children. The purpose of this site is to familiarize parents and student teachers with our curriculum and to enhance your child’s learning experience.
Each child has the right to be respected for his or her feelings, abilities, needs, and culture.
A young child is eager to accept new experiences as wonderful and exciting adventures presented to them in a way that is natural in the form of play. Children learn through play, so all of the learning activities are presented through play, based on age appropriateness and individual needs.
We provide an opportunity for each child to imitate play, in an environment in which he/she feels accepted in values, love and respect. Each child is able to learn and master new skills such as; self esteem self-discipline, confidence, empathy, creativity, curiosity, and belief that he/she can have an effect on their world. A respect for the rights of others and an acceptance of those who are different from them.
For your child, The Child Development Center is a fun, warm, and nurturing environment where he or she can:
All our activities engage the children so they can explore, experiment, and ask questions, and are questioned to further their thinking and problem solving skills. This in turn, will help them construct their own knowledge to learn about the world around them.
