EARLY DEVELOPMENT


IS FUNDAMENTAL TO THE GROWTH OF A CHILD.

EARLY DEVELOPMENT


IS FUNDAMENTAL TO THE GROWTH OF A CHILD.

Our Child Care & Learning Center encourages compassion and love in a Christian environment that enables children to learn and grow at their own pace. We are committed to the happy and healthy development of our future generation and practice the Love and Logic approach in our center. “Love allows children to grow through their mistakes; Logic allows them to live with the consequences of their choices. Love and logic is a way to take control and teach children to be responsible and think for themselves and be prepared for the real world!”

Our mission is to provide opportunities for children to GROW:

SPIRITUALLY

OVFCCLC believes we are all (both adults & children) spiritual in nature, who were created by a loving/personal God. We believe in nurturing and fostering spiritual awareness and practices including prayer, morality, etc.

EMOTIONALY

Encourage, support and help your child grow in positive self-awareness; living confidently in who they are.

SOCIALLY

Provide an environment in which your child understands, values and learns to cooperate with other people.

PHYSICALLY

Plan activities in which children regard their body as a gift and grow in perceptual motor skills and bodily development.

INTELLECTUALLY

Involve your child in appropriate experiences to enhance discovery, communication, conceptualization and creativity.

Our Philosophy? PLAY!

At Olympic View Friends Child Care & Learning Center we believe that children learn best through play. It is only through play, that a child can reach their full potential. Play offers the opportunity for a child to:

• Develop self-confidence

• Experience joy

• Learn to adapt

• Take calculated risks

• Experiment

• Express creativity

• Experience emotional release

• Bond with peers and form friendships

• Develop as a well-rounded individual

Our approach is to let the child be an active participant in the learning process. Our teachers create a learning environment that fosters open-ended experiences, which allow each child’s learning style to be met. The teacher’s role in the classroom is as a facilitator to help expand exploration with materials, meaningful conversation and gentle guidance.
