The philosophy that children learn best through their play and that children learn by doing permeates our childcare program. The staff creates an atmosphere in which children have an opportunity to play with others and materials in cooperative and self-directed matters.

The children will have a variety of experiences in all the creative arts: creative movement, songs, finger plays, construction with blocks, story telling, poetry, as well as a myriad of graphic media. The units that teachers plan for the children include activities that enhance the physical, emotional, social, and intellectual growth in each individual's development. The teachers plan experiences to enhance the curriculum in the preschool and pre-kindergarten classes.

All children attending childcare on a full day schedule and who do not attend preschool or pre-k for afternoon classes will lie down on cots and sheets provided by the Childcare Center. A child may bring a special blanket, small pillow and/or washable soft toy for resting.
