School for Young Children’s educational philosophy is based on early childhood research and theories that emphasize:
-The early childhood years are the most important developmental years of a person’s life.
-Children learn best at their own pace in a non-biased environment that is nurturing, supportive, and replete with developmentally appropriate activities.
-Children learn through their senses; learning activities must be concrete, real, and relevant.
-Children should be given the opportunity to explore, discover, create and interact with their environment.
-Learning environments should be rich with opportunities for children to communicate, and develop self-control.
-Learning environments should also facilitate the development of self-esteem. Children should be respected, accepted, and comforted regardless of their behavior.
-The focus of the early childhood curriculum should be on the whole child. It should provide for all areas of development: social, emotional, intellectual, and physical.
