Philosophy: Beth’s Blessings is a quality Child Care Center where Parents / Families Children are welcomed and embraced. I believe every child is a genius, a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. Children should have opportunities in the environment for developmentally appropriate activities that encourage and motivate them to work towards individual growth and achievement, both academically and socially, to be successful in future school experiences. Goals: * Provide the best atmosphere for learning, a pleasant one of acceptance, mutual respect, fairness, consistency, clear limits and expectations, safety, fun, and encouragement. * Encourage each child’s right to play, learn, develop and engage in quality interactions and developmentally appropriate activities that foster the strengths, needs and interests of children. * Create a loving, nurturing, and happy environment where children’s emotional, mental, and physical needs are responded to in a respectful and caring manner. * Beth’s Blessings Child Care is a place for children to enjoy their childhood and form lasting friendships and memories!
