|Welcome to Kiddie City Learning Center|
Research and experience tell us that to be effective with young children; teaching practices need to be “developmentally appropriate”. This simply means that educators need to think first about what young children are like and then create an environment and experience that are in tune with children’s characteristics. Children 2-6 learn far better through direct interactive experiences than through just listening to someone talk. They learn extraordinary amounts through play and exploration.
Based on such knowledge about what children of this age are like, we design our program to fit them. It works a lot better than trying to redesign children!
Our program is age-appropriate. But that’s not all. We are eager to learn as much as we can about each child’s family, cultural background, past experiences and current circumstances. With this knowledge we work to create a program that fits the children and the families we serve.
The APPLE accreditation process is very rigorous and is aligned with national standards.
