Philosophy

Family childcare in a “home like” setting is the best alternative there is for working parents. It provides a small, secure environment for children during the most important time of their development. Family childcare offers a "home away from home" experience, providing children with “siblings” of all ages, to play, socialize, and learn from.

 

My goal in providing quality childcare for your child is to provide…    

  • A safe environment

 

  • A nurturing environment

 

  • A learning environment… learning is not necessarily the ABC’s and 123’s but is also the learning of values. The learning of honesty, respect, self–reliance, and potential, self-discipline, and moderation, the values of being dependable, love, sensitivity to others, kindness, friendliness and fairness.

 

  • A proper approach to discipline… Since children occasionally need discipline, it is important that you and I share a similar philosophy so that your child is not too confused as to where the boundaries are and what is expected of him/her. At SCC, children are taught which behaviors are inappropriate, and why, and given alternatives that are acceptable. In this way, the behavior is being changed, without making the child feel “bad” or unloved. This helps develop their self-esteem and teaches them how to handle difficult situations themselves in the future. My approach is first, express my disapproval (without attacking character). Next, state my expectations and show your child how to make amends. Last, give choices because at times a child may be having trouble making choices of their own. We believe this approach helps foster a child-provider relationship.

 

  • Foster unconditional love… this kind of love is very important to me because children should not grow up feeling that in order to be loved and cared for, they must meet numerous conditions.
