About the Provider

Description: Adventures in Learning Child Care Center, is dedicated to providing an enriched environment to enhance the cognitive, physical, and social developments of children. It is our goal to provide a program which offers opportunities to develop critical thinking skills, heightens curiosity and awareness, provides hands-on experiences through activities and field trips, exposes chldren to nature and provides a sense of security and responsibility to foster independence and self-confidence.

Adventures in Learning takes a holistic approach to early childhood education. At the core of our philosophy, we believe that each child is unique and therefore deserves individual attention and care. Because of their innate curiosity, it is up to us, at Adventures in Learning to develop suitable activities based on our observations of each child's individual needs.

Our curriculum reflects this comprehensive and highly individualized approach. Kids are divided into different groups during one part of the day in an effort to provide them with developmentally appropriate activities. At other times, children of all ages play together in order to learn from one another – the younger ones as learners, the older kids as role models.

In addition to the basic skills required for a lifetime of learning, Adventures in Learning imparts values such as creativity, self-reliance, compassion and respect for diversity. In order to achieve this goal, it is essential for us to work closely with you, the parents, to provide the best possible situation for your children.

Additional Information: Initial License Date: 9/4/2007. Open Jan - Dec. 3 stars.
