About Kid Works Children's Center
1. Teaching methodology:
If you have ever seen the look of pure delight on a child’s face when they have mastered a new task, then you have an idea why we value our work. More accurately defined, instead of ‘teaching’ young children, we provide many opportunities for them to learn valuable lessons and skills when they are ready. Our goals for young children are related to the important business of becoming independent, responsible and self-sufficient. Children love to be in charge and in control; we help them satisfy this need by allowing and expecting responsible and respectful behavior. Many of the skills we practice during our day help children obtain these goals. As we recognize Kid Works as a child’s work place, we are proud to offer a program that provides the many opportunities for growth and the desire to learn.
We are strong believers of engaging the hand, heart and body to engage the brain. We encourage true, deep play. For example, giving them a true sensory experience if they play in the mud or finger paint with their entire body. Going home in different clothes than they arrived in in the morning is common having been given the opportunity to play in the... rain and watch the watercolors merge in the puddle or dig a trench and jump in the mud.
Our environment is designed and furnished with a wide variety of materials and settings to encourage experimenting, exploring, discovery, and involvement whether inside or out. Our qualified staff is dedicated to the idea that children develop and learn best in an atmosphere that is warm, safe, encouraging, understanding, stimulating, motivating, and fun!
