The Growing Child strives to provide a developmentally appropriate program.
All children are able to grow as individuals as they master skills they need to develop a positive self-image.
Every child has the opportunity to develop to his/her full potential.
Our purpose is to provide a stimulating experience, family support and encouragement to help your child through their early years of development.
We know child care, understand the different needs and demands of the growing child and insist on a loving and caring environment for all children.
Our Philosophy is to recognize and respect through inclusion, the uniqueness and potential of all children.
This will be achieved through theme based lesson plans in conjunction with the Creative Curriculum learning series.
The Center provides an environment where children learn through play while developing positive social interaction skills.
Children's activities will be developmentally appropriate and will encourage self-confidence, spontaneity, curiosity, and self-discipline.
The learning environment is aimed at providing for the individual needs of each child within our nurturing atmosphere.
