Country Day's 儿童早期 Children's Center (CDECC), 以前是爱迪生大厦, 充满了温暖和能量. It is where children from infants to four years blossom, 父母通常在哪里, and where attachments that continue from one year to the next are formed.
At CDECC, each child is allowed to develop at their own pace. We view children as unique learners who need the opportunity to acquire knowledge in ways that are meaningful to them. No two children will learn the exact same way, and no two children develop at the same rate.
Our philosophy is based on the fact that children learn best by being active participants in constructing their knowledge. For this reason, they have every opportunity to play and explore in a stimulating environment. They are encouraged to explore the properties of water by playing with objects and seeing which ones sink or float. They learn about art by watching a visiting artist mix colors and then trying it themselves. They discover what the terms rough and smooth mean by using their fingers to compare the texture of flour to oats.
Country Day's campus provides our 儿童早期 Center children the luxury of acres of land to play and explore in a safe and stimulating environment. 通过玩耍, 孩子们知道什么是真实的，什么是虚假的, 他们发展了符号思维, 他们学会与他人互动, and they lay the foundation for all the cognitive changes that will rapidly occur. Children with opportunities to explore through play learn to question, 找到答案, 和解决问题. This, in turn, will generate excitement and enthusiasm about learning - a goal of our program.
What we love the most about CDECC, though, is the dedication of our teachers. They are the heart of our Center, creating an atmosphere filled with warmth and enthusiasm. Our teachers are experienced, knowledgeable, and continually developing professionally. 他们对学生的生活很感兴趣, 认真对待自己每天的工作, and believe in each child's uniqueness-- striving to match activities with individual needs.
Children are placed within a classroom based on their age and needs. Our Center has classrooms built around various ages with one, two, three, and four-year-old rooms. There is no hardline cutoff date for when your child enters each class. 我们的课程很灵活, and enrollment options range from two to five days a week, 兼职或全职. Extended care is also available for parents who need more flexibility.
