Littleton Knowledge Beginnings

  • Learning is meant to be a natural, joyful experience. Children learn by playing, experimenting, exploring, and testing.
  • Children flourish when the process of discovery is lovingly encouraged and gently reinforced.
  • This is the philosophy behind our research-based curriculum, which fosters individual growth by providing plenty of opportunities for exploration and child-initiated choice.
  • All children need opportunities to be responsible, to make choices, and to be treated with respect.
  • Our programs encourage your child’s growth and development with early-learning experiences that build a strong foundation for children’s cognitive, social, emotional, and physical skills.
  • We believe each child has unique talents and interests. We honor these differences by providing children with customized attention and activities that enable them to learn and grow at their own paces and in their own ways.
  • Specific activities may vary depending on the classroom and the age of the children.
  • The underlying principles of our programs, however, remain the same: Children learn through active exploration; children initiate their own learning; learning comes from open-ended experiences; and adults are facilitators of children’s learning.

Our parents have faith in Knowledge Beginnings to provide the highest quality care and education their children ranging in age from 8 weeks to 12 years. We are more than a child care center. As a school, Knowledge Beginnings is a place where children explore, discover and learn. We respect children as individuals and our dedicated teachers ensure that children get the positive learning experience they need to grow up happy and confident.
