We thrive to provide the time, space, materials and guidance needed by children to optimize their play experience. Children can only realize their fullest potential if they are able to develop a positive self-image.
We believe that:
Children thrive in our environment because there are parent volunteers who like, understand, and respect them, and they have a safe, stimulating and supportive environment for them to learn and grow.
Play is the most effective means available to young children to accomplish integration and growth.
Parenting young children is a challenging role, the skills of parenting can be shared and learned, facilitating a positive passage for both parent and child through this most important stage of a child’s life.
Here at CCNS:
Parents work in partnership with the teachers to
- support their child’s experiences
- discover new approaches to child rearing
- re-examine their established parenting patterns.
Children as well as adults learn and grow together in an atmosphere of appreciation and acceptance. Adults deserve the same respect, guidance and caring from each other and from the teacher as the children receive.
Many cultures and traditions are represented by our member families, thus exposing the children at a very young age to various differences and similarities between people.
Parents have direct influence in shaping the school. It is the hand in hand cooperation between the parents and credentialed teachers that determines the total program each year.
