At "Nuevo Amanecer," we believe that children have the ability to learn if they are provided with a safe environment where they can express and develop their cognitive, physical, social, emotional and language skills. We understand that each child learns differently: visually, kinesthetically, and aurally. The daily activities will vary to be able to touch base in the different styles of learning and thus to help the development of each child. It is also important to establish healthy eating habits and we do this by providing a healthy meal. --- En "Nuevo Amanecer", creemos que los niños tienen la capacidad de aprender si se les brinda un entorno seguro donde puedan expresar y desarrollar sus habilidades cognitivas, físicas, sociales, emocionales y de lenguaje. Entendemos que cada niño aprende de manera diferente: visual, cinestésicamente y auditivamente. Las actividades diarias variarán para poder basarse en los diferentes estilos de aprendizaje y así ayudar al desarrollo de cada niño. También es importante establecer hábitos alimenticios saludables y lo hacemos brindando una comida saludable.
