We at Step by Step Learning Center believe that:
- The parent's role in the development of the child entrusted to us must be supported and reinforced through our program.
- There are certain basic values such as Honesty, Integrity, Caring, Concern, and Self-Esteem which must become part of our children if they are to function as responsible citizens of our society.
- Children will be encouraged to express their feelings and ideas to grow in self-confidence and independence.
- Knowledge of each child's background, needs, and interests will enable us to work more effectively with the child; the parent's input in this and all aspects of our program is very important.
- Our program will provide meaningful, personalized experiences, which will enhance the spiritual, emotional, physical, and cognitive growth development of the young child
- Everyday activities and routines have been designed to encourage the children learn self-help and independence.
- We are in the unique position of reaching the minds of our young. It is our desire and responsibility to cultivate and nourish those minds to their ultimate potential, as well as create a caring environment in which to learn.
- We believe very strongly that education is the cornerstone of society being able to flourish. We strive to make learning a pleasant and enjoyable experience for our children.
