PHILOSOPHY/ GOALS:  As a teacher and director, I want to focus on each child's overall development and individual needs to help promote physical, cognitive, social-emotional, and language skills.  These levels of development play a very important role in the early childhood years.  Every individual child needs to explore  their capabilities.  My goal is to provide aprint-rich, natural environment that is safe, healthy, and developmentally appropriate with plenty of learning experiences. If we can provide appropriate activities, then a child's needs will be enhanced along with opportunities for intellectual challenges.   Children have a natural disposition to construct their own knowledge through play.  By enhancing a child's growth and responding to their needs, I will improve their learning abilities overall.
