Our philosophy is to meet the nutritional, social, emotional, intellectual and physical needs of all children. Our program is designed to be developmentally, appropriate for children ages 6 weeks – 14 years old. The children will learn to interact with one another and solve problems with the guidance of the teachers. The children will be exposed to a variety of hands on experiences to help with their developmental milestones.
The center will never discriminate against any one because of race, color, religion, national origin or sexual orientation. We will, to the best of our ability accommodate anyone with differing abilities. We will also, to the best of our ability, incorporate the guidelines of the Americans with Disability Acts, to make the center as accessible as possible. The center implements cultural diversity into our curriculum on a regular basis so that our children will be aware of the real world around them.
All of the information that we gather will help the staff to make sure that we are closely following the NAEYC Code of Ethical Conduct ideals and principles. PKCYC is well equipped to care for children with special needs. Our specialized training includes: caring for children with special health care needs, behavioral/emotional challenges, children that have experienced trauma (family separation, homelessness, etc.) The staff at PKCYC will stay well informed about early care issues that may arise through continuing education, trainings/workshops and research. We will be open to new ideas and suggestions from our enrolled families and we will take those ideas and suggestions and implement them into our programming accordingly. We will complete self-evaluations and self-reflections often to improve our standards and progress as early childhood educators.
