Philosophy

Allison's Infant & Toddler Center is committed to providing a safe, nurturing, enriching, and healthy environment for children. We believe that play is the work of young children and we provide ample time for this “work” to take place.

      Children develop at their own speed and learn best when actively involved in the learning process. Each day, children will explore the classroom and try out their ideas through dramatic play, art, water play, outdoor activities, stories, block building, and talking with teachers, as well as other children.

We believe that each child has untapped potential and that it is the responsibility of parents, teachers, and the community together to provide opportunities for all children to be healthy, successful, and happy.

We provide high quality of service to children between the ages of 6 weeks-6years old from various ethnic backgrounds. We have a strong desire to share our difference, some of which stem from the way we learn and which also contribute to our communal an intellectual richness.

      We believe that a structured program which addresses the development of the child holistically, physical, intellectual, social and emotional make-up will better enhance the child for future endeavors.

      While we want our students to be independent and discerning learners, we also would like them to be team learners as well. Above all, we want our students to be able to apply their skill in the new, the unknown, and the unpredictable. In this way learning can lead to creative solutions to life’s challenges.
