Mission Statement "Where Families Grow Together," describes our philosophy of mixed age classrooms where siblings can often stay together in the same classroom. All children have the opportunity to build self-confidence as "older brothers or sisters" to younger children. These experiences contribute to the growth of self-motivated, independent learners.
Environment Our home-like environment is created by photos, toys, and furniture but mostly, consistant, nurturing staff. The majority of the teachers have been with Teddy's Place, Inc. for 10+ years and hold various associate's, bachelor's, and master's degrees. With no time-outs and a focus on positive communication, children learn to face challenges, and react with optimism.
Positive Learning Every child learns in different ways and at their own pace. By exploring a unit in as many ways as possible, we provide learning opportunities to suit each child's unique needs. Units are often grouped together so children understand there are many components to any topic.
Purpose Our purpose is to nurture children in a safe, positive, family environment and help them learn through developmentally appropriate games and play. We are lucky to have a large open field and fenced in playgrounds as well as spacious classrooms with lofts. These spaces help children develop the desire to explore and question the environment around them.
