Our Goals

  • To provide children with opportunities to gain competence in a variety of skills such as; art, science, music, movement, and language arts, through hands – on experiences.
  • To provide an atmosphere that promotes respect for each other.
  • To develop in the child, an active curiosity about the world in which they live and an enthusiasm for learning.

Our Philosophy

We believe that each child’s development should be an even and well balanced progression that allows success socially, emotionally, physically, cognitively, and creatively.

We believe that it is the process not the product which is most important. Learning and development occur within a process and are not sought directly as a goal, but as a journey of discovery.

We believe that play is one of the most important tools to assess a child’s development. Through play we can observe a child’s social, emotional, cognitive, creative, and physical selves.

We believe that children learn best through hands-on, interactive experiences, therefore our curriculum is based on child interests and our classrooms are set up to promote exploration.

We believe that a positive preschool experience filled with love, respect, friends, play, praise, confidence, imagination, acknowledgment, playdough, dancing, tricycles, singing, blocks, hugs, stories, exploration, creativity, fun, independence, laughter, painting, science, cooking, puppets and games, is the foundation for a life-long love of learning!

Growing Years is operated on a non-discriminating basis and no one shall be denied enrollment because of race, color, religion, or national origin. Our goals are to provide a loving, caring atmosphere in which a child grows in self-confidence and self esteem.
