From our past experience, we know that the level of caring, effort, and professionalism you show is not found everywhere. Most important, you seem to understand that children can only learn new skills and gain confidence and self-esteem in an environment where they feel valued, accepted and respected. You do a beautiful job of providing that environment — thank you.
The Discovery Center program incorporates the following principles of child development:
Every individual is unique and develops best when that uniqueness is respected.
A necessary precursor to growth is the development of a good self-concept in a child.
All aspects of development are interrelated and must be treated as such by the adults responsible for a child's growth.
Secure personal relationships, creative opportunities for learning and self-expression, and appropriate guidance at each stage of a child's development are essential to The Discovery Center program.
