Philosophy

Kid Country Childcare believes that young children learn best when they are given choices to participate in activities that interest them and are allowed to follow-through with these choices for appropriate lengths of time.  In other words, children learn by playing!  Play is a necessary and integral part of childhood.  We believe that all areas of a child’s development should be part of the curriculum, as each area affects the other.  This integrated approach to curriculum allows children to learn through themes and relevant context.  We believe that the child’s parents and teachers, curriculum and materials all play a part in the child’s growth and development.  We believe that children need to be in an environment that allows them to feel safe and secure, along with promoting their social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development.

Purpose

Kid Country Childcare’s purpose is to provide a safe, secure place where young children can achieve appropriate social behaviors and develop cognitively and physically, along with promoting independence and self-help skills. 

Goals
