EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY

 

We are committed, at Home Away From Home, to the belief that the early childhood years are developmentally the most formative years.  To encourage the children to grow individually in all developmental areas, we emphasize creativity, self-expression, imagination, critical thinking skills and most importantly, we encourage each child to recognize and appreciate how simply wonderful he or she truly is.  We positively, yet honestly, respond to them.  We applaud their efforts as well as their accomplishments.  We believe in their ability to make good decisions and support them whenever the need exists.  We also believe that this is the time that self-confidence, self-esteem, and successful adaptation to their world begins to emerge. We recently redefined our system-wide curriculum from the ground up.  Our curriculum is now based on the New York State Common Core Curriculum and Reggio Emilia based learning. We are ensuring to prepare your children for when they enter school and to be consistent with the education of our public school systems.

 

Since children are constantly learning, we have organized our program to enable the children to grow at their own pace and in their own direction, using whatever talent they choose.  We genuinely respect and appreciate each child and encourage them to feel the same way towards others.
