About the Provider

Description: Our philosophy is based on the National Association for the Education of Young Children's (NAEYC) developmentally appropriate practices.

In the early years, children explore the world around them by using all of their senses. In using real materials such as blocks and trying out their ideas, children learn about sizes, shapes, and colors, and they notice the relationships between things. Therefore, child-initiated, teacher-supported play is an essential component of developmental appropriateness. Examples of developmentally appropriate learning activities for three, four, and five year olds are:
