PHILOSOPHY

Program Philosophy: We believe each child is special and holds the future in his or her hands. We offer a quality child care program for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and school age children that facilitates and nurtures the individual needs and abilities of each child. Our program is based on the Creative Curriculum philosophies which stress a developmentally appropriate setting that allows children to be active explorers and encourages learning through play, movement, music, stories and fosters social interaction between other children and adults. Our program provides a balance of small group and individual time, active and quiet time as well as indoor and outdoor opportunities to meet the needs of the children. Children learn through play how to make choices and take control of their actions; this helps build self-confidence.

Children with or without special needs benefit from exposure to and interaction with one another. All children deserve the same opportunities. Any special therapeutic or behavioral programs required are integrated into our developmentally appropriate environment.

Gladiolus Learning and Development Center is committed to making a difference to help break the cycle of poverty through education, leadership and support.
