THE FIRST TEACHER
As your childs' first teacher, you are the key in how well your son or daughter does in childcare and in school.
PARTNER WITH US
We invite you to work with our teachers and administrators to help your student(s) get all they can out of their growing years.
We believe in an environment with boundaries that are consistent, easy for children to understand, fair and developmentally appropriate.
We rely on positive behavior techniques and rewards to motivate children.
It is important for parents to choose a child care provider that most closely matches their own parenting philosophy.
We encourage every family that is considering Haddon Learning Center as a child care provider to tour our school and get to know us.
Tours are individual and must be scheduled in advance, to insure that a Haddon Learning Center staff member is available to introduce your family to our school and to answer all of your questions.
THE TEACHERS, ADMINISTRATORS AND STAFF AT Haddon Learning Center child care ARE UNITED IN THEIR commitment to early childhood education. We believe that all children:
Need to be included and feel valued and loved;
Have the power and desire to play and therefore learn through play;
Are curious and creative;
No two children have exactly the same personality or learning style. That is why from our infant room, we utilize a mulitisensory approach to early childhood education. We combine direct instruction, small-group work, movement (exercise and dancing), music, and hands on learning so that each child experiences every facet of a lesson or theme.
If the letter for the week is A, we will sing about A's, dance about A's, form A's with our body, make A sounds, we will take walks and search for things that start with the sound that the letter A makes. Our art and fine motor skills will also be centered around the letter A. We explore each topic and theme with our minds, body and spirit.
Our center utilizes the acclaimed Pinnacle® Curriculum. Pinnacle® is a research-based early childhood curriculum, designed with both teachers and students in mind. Based on the works of Piaget, Gardner, and Erikson, Pinnacle® provides HLC teachers with the foundation to engage our students in developmentally appropriate activities.
