Philosophy & History
The purpose of Care-O-World is to operate and maintain a program of learning for the children and families in our existing community and neighboring communities who require and desire our services.
Our goal is to provide a program of daily activities designed to stimulate and enhance the development of each child. The goals are planned with an awareness of children’s special needs, interests, characteristics, and ways of learning. Therefore, we must keep in mind when setting goals that goals must be broad and individualized. We recognize how vital and important this period is as a foundation for the child’s total development. We strive to prepare each child for kindergarten success and for life-long learning. Our goal is to make each preschool year an important and satisfying experience.
We recognize that all children come to school with different strengths. By recognizing and respecting the individuality of each child, the teacher will be better able to communicate and reach each child in small personal groups. We believe in an atmosphere where a child feels secure, confident and free to explore and question so that his or her potential abilities and aptitude for learning will flourish.
We recognize that all children, when possible, should be served in an inclusive classroom environment. Additionally, children and their families are not discriminated against due to race, color, national origin, age, disability, sex, marital status, familial status, parental status, religion, sexual orientation, genetic information, political beliefs, reprisal, or because all or a part of an individual's income is derived from any public assistance program.
Our goal is to implement a curriculum that creates a happy, healthy, intellectual, challenging and motivating atmosphere. We strive to create and structure the classroom activities so that we are able to encourage children to be intellectually curious and constructively occupied.
