Weatherford Academy Early Learning Center Philosophy
At WAELC, we believe in an integrated program that involves the children, the parents and our staff. We have incorporated an open communication between staff and parents by providing a safe and stimulating environment that enriches the children through these important first years.
Parents are always welcomed at our day care, for visiting their children, feedings or nursing, as the parents' schedules allow.
Parental education is important, and we encourage you to ask questions regarding your child's activity, nutrition, growth and development. Flexibility of the program is important, as the needs of infants are constantly changing and developing. A positive and happy staff, a trusting relationship between care-giver and the child, clean and well-organized environment, room to play, indoors and outside, in a safe and stimulating home environment.
To provide a nurturing environment where children can grow and develop physically, mentally, emotionally and socially. Children learn through their play and age-appropriate activities, toys, expectations and materials shall be provided.
Each child is an individual and needs to be treated as such. They come to us in all shapes and sizes and at all stages of development. WAELC will guide them through these stages and build upon them. We will be looking for large and small motor development, coordination, interaction with peers and communicating in the physical domain and assisting with language and cognitive development.
Our goal is to provide all of the children in our care, a clean, safe, comfortable, loving and environment, where they can play and learn. Respect toward self, others and the environment will be emphasized. We believe in the value of both structured and flexible schedules. Structured activities will include the use of a preschool curriculum, regular reading times, arts and crafts, computer time and musical activities. Outdoor play, free play, birthday parties, is some of the more flexible activities we have. The most important priority is to HAVE FUN!
