Crystal Child Development Center offers an early learning program that is individualized according to a thorough understanding of the child’s unique developmental process, interests, and needs. The following is our philosophical framework for our program:
· We believe children learn all day through play.
· We believe children learn best in a positive environment that is designed to foster their self-confidence and self-esteem.
· We value and respect the uniqueness of each individual and their culture
· We believe that children learn through relationships: child-child, child-caregiver, child-parent, and child-community.
· We believe parents are important partners in a child’s education.
