About Us

Early Care and Education Center

Our Philosophy 

  • We believe that children are strong, intelligent, competent and constantly learning.
  • We believe that parents know their children best and have the right to be full participants in their children’s education.
  • We believe that teachers are caring professionals trained to support the children in their learning and the parents in their participation.
  • We believe that teachers are researchers engaged in the creation of new knowledge as they work alongside the children and in collaboration with other adults in the campus community.
  • We believe that children have a right to a beautiful, caring, responsive environment in which to grow and learn together with other children and adults.
  • We believe that children, parents, and teachers are all learners and all teachers.
  • We believe that the college students who participate in our programs at all levels of their study from beginning observations to semester-long internships are unique, integral, and valuable members of our learning/teaching community.
