The philosophy of a child care center largely influences the types of activities, the curriculum and the kind of care that will be presented in the center. Therefore, it is imperative that parents become familiar with the philosophy behind the center in order to understand the focus of the program.
Staff members at Troy Babes in Toyland feel that the program should focus on the development of the whole child. In order to do this, we look at the cognitive, physical, emotional, and social needs of each child. We feel that children develop sequentially from one stage of development to another. Because of this, we feel that children must be provided with opportunities to explore, create and problem-solve with materials and topics that are both relevant and appropriate to their developmental age. These activities will challenge them and aid in their progression from one stage to the next.
We also believe that children construct knowledge through experience: therefore our program will provide children with a large variety of activities that will allow for success and encourage advancement in all areas of development. In addition, we feel that in order for children to grow, they need to exist in a setting that meets their basic needs. Therefore, it is our utmost concern that our program provides a nuturing, comfortable environment that is specifically structured to meet the physical, emotional and developmental needs of each child's experiance and learning is dependent upon the relationship between the staff, families and children. A strong sense of community is developed when all participants are focused on children.
