Directors Philosophy

The directors philosophy is based on learning through play

Directors Philosophy

The directors philosophy is to develop children’s social, emotional, intellectual, language and physical skills. Each child has unique characteristics that help to develop these skills. Each aspect of development is equally important and children learn better in an environment where there is trust and honesty.

Also a safe and caring environment is very important for development. Directors philosophy is to treat the children in her centre like she would treat her own children while treating the parents in a way that she would like to be treated as a parent, while treating  the staff in the environment like she would want to be treated as a staff member.

The directors philosophy is to accept suggestions from parents viewing them as highly valuable towards the development of the centre. The input from parents is helpful since we can involve everyone in the center. This builds a relationship between staff members and parents, which allows parents to trust the staff. Parents are welcome to assist at the center by volunteering on field trips, donating items to the center and also helping throughout the center.

Having a center, which is multicultural, is important for a child’s development. Showing different cultures to the children shows them that their friends come from different places and believe in different things. To support our multicultural environment, Happy Faces Childcare sponsors two children in Africa by providing food, clean clothes, education and a shelter for them. We would also like to be a part of the community as a whole by providing community services such as giving a helping hand. Every year, each child, the staff, and I, go to clean the park up twice a year. This teaches children that whatever we play with should be looked after as well.

To conclude, “all growth depends upon activity. There is no development physically or intellectually without effort, and effort means work.” Calvin Coolidge
