Serendipity Early Care And Edu

  • At Serendipity, 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.
  • It instills a sense of responsibility and respect, because they must follow the rules.
  • It accommodates greater individualized learning because children proceed at their own pace.
  • At Serendipity, children's activities center on objects and experiences that develop more fully their understanding of what they can see, touch, hear, smell, and taste.
  • Objects are safe, fun, and can be manipulated in different ways as children develop their awareness and discover details and relationships.
  • Teachers, trained to understand the sequences children experience as they learn, provide the play props.
  • They set the stage for each learning experience. Then they stand back allowing the children freedom of choice, the freedom to learn in their own way, at their own pace.
  • Teachers recognize when to give individual attention to a particular child; helping a child reach out to share a new discovery, reminding another of a vital piece that is just outside his range of vision, or just giving a quick hug, or a word of encouragement.
