Our Philosophy

We proudly feature the REGGIO APPROACH in our curriculum

OVERVIEW

Katie’s Kids Learning Centers serves children ages 6 weeks to 6 years old. We offer quality care in a home-like and professional environment. This attention to high quality in a professional and comfortable environment sets Katie’s Kids apart from the rest. By providing staff that possess the best skills to offer a warm, supportive and stimulating environment, we are able to meet the needs of each individual child.

We believe that children should be actively involved in play to develop the whole child. Teachers prepare a variety of engaging choices for children each day. Children learn to get along with other children.

WE VALUE

• A curriculum that emerges from the needs and interests of children and teachers.
• Parents as partners in documenting children’s learning.
• A sense of community in the classroom and the neighborhood.
• Continuity and stability in relationships between children and their teachers.
• Openness and directness in interpersonal relationships at every level of the organization.
• Respect for the environment inside and outside the classroom.
