Mission Statement

We believe children are unique, capable, creative, problem-solvers, eager to learn. The CDCLS Staff is committed to designing and implementing a safe, friendly, nurturing, environment, which promotes high quality care, and physical, intellectual, and social-emotional developmental growth, in a collaborative effort with children, families, community, and one another.

Philosophy

The program considers the development of the whole child and concentrates on children as unique individuals, allowing each child to develop at his/her own pace. Each child and family member is treated with respect and dignity. Play is recognized as the direct avenue to learning, realizing the vital importance of discovery, investigation, creativity, and problem-solving opportunities. Partnerships with parents are identified as a key component in creating a collaborative team for the purpose of cultural awareness and raising children to become productive, responsible citizens.

Program Goals and Objectives

Our primary goal for the children and the families is to provide a positive atmosphere, which will promote all areas of a young child's growth and development, as well as increase parent's knowledge about young children.

The child will develop:

  • a healthy self-concept
  • socially and emotionally
  • an enjoyment of creative experiences and fine arts
  • a trust in adults and peers
  • an independence and responsibility for self
  • a sense of security and success
  • skills in the physical, cognitive, social, and linguistic domains

Objectives are developed from the content areas of classroom and teacher child-directed projects, activities, and lessons.

Our primary goals for parents and families are to:

  • understand appropriate expectations of young children
  • develop positive guidance techniques
  • create an atmosphere of open communication with the child's school
  • realize the importance of active involvement with the child's teaching team
