PHILOSOPHY


I believe there is no greater investment than to positively influence the life of a child. Each child deserves to grow and learn at their own pace. My responsibility is to provide the tools and the learning environment that will give your child every opportunity to develop to their greatest potential. I offer this with a high degree of love, support and understanding. Children deserve to receive all the support and respect it takes to establish a strong foundation for their future. I accomplish this with a learning environment that is fun and exciting.

I Promise
I promise you every day your child will learn something,
Some days they will bring it home in their hands,
Some days they will bring it home in their heads,
And some days they will bring it home in their hearts.
-Valerie Welk

Circle Time

Our program includes all the children during this special time. I beleive that is how each child learns so quickly. We begin each morning with 'The Pledge of Allegiance' and then a 'Morning Greeting Song.' (I am a huge believer of incorporating music into our learning.) We use our weather calendar to plot the daily weather and everyone quickly learns how to hand sign the weather! We learn our days of the week, months and season through a catchy chant. Every week we work on a different letter and every month we have a different color and nursery rhyme. We practice our shapes, numbers, opposites and animal sounds through fun games.  Each week there are many books and crafts to go along with the theme of the week and month.
