Program Philosophy

Curious Kids Learning Center has a philosophy that believes children learn best when you provide a developmentally appropriate education set in a safe, happy, nurturing environment, based upon learning through play.  We work to promote the physical and mental health of the “Whole Child.”  We create structured activities and provide free play opportunities that are designed to develop social skills, creativity, morals and values that will provide them with a foundation for success as they progress through their educational experiences.

Partnerships with Families

Curious Kids Learning Center believes that to have a successful and enriching program we must have parent involvement.  Parents are after all their children’s first and most lasting teachers.  The center has several methods of involving and partnering with our families.

  1. Parent Surveys- these surveys will be handed out twice per year and will give families the opportunity to request information, make program suggestions, comment on our classroom environments, etc. The director will respond to all surveys and will organize parent trainings, discussions, handouts or group activities as a follow up procedure.
  2. Volunteer Opportunities- parents are always welcome and encouraged to come in and share a special tradition, aspect of a culture, language or special talent with a group. We ask that you discuss this first with your child’s teacher and they can help arrange a time that would best fit the activity and schedule.  Parents of school agers may also volunteer to assist on summer field trips.
  3. Parent Board- parents will be given the opportunity to act on a parent board. Some of the responsibilities of the board would include program enhancements, fundraising and special events.
