We believe that nature, community, harmony and discovery are the most important attributes of early childhood. We also believe early childhood is a crucial aspect of an individual’s development. Children deserve attention during this period in their lives. We also believe that each child has their own unique style of development and it is our responsibility to observe, recognize and support them as individuals.
We believe that caregivers, the community and families are all responsible for the well-being of each child. Children should be recognized and included as a part of their community. Relationships are vital to a child’s success and are the most important aspect of our program. The relationship between teachers and families is the foundation of quality care.
A child’s environment is essential to healthy development. Children learn through experiencing the world around them. Nature is the most organic and unfiltered learning environment. By supporting the relationship between children and nature, they are able to see the natural rhythms and transitions of the world them. Children’s innate sense of wonder, discovery and curiosity is supported and encouraged through their connection to the natural world.
