Serendipity Early Care & Education Center
At Serendipity Early Care And Education, the focus is on child-centered activities.
This means that the choices are left for the children to make.
This teaches initiative and independence because the choices are not being made for them.
At Serendipity, children activities center on objects and experiences that develop more fully their understanding of what they can see, touch, hear, smell and taste.
Children's natural curiosity and desire to make sense of their world motivates them to become involved in learning activities.
We learn best what we do by ourselves, or as Piaget put it: "Every time we teach a child something we prevent him form discovering it himself."
