The goal of Children’s Place at the Plaza is to provide a safe, stimulating, and loving atmosphere in which children can grow and learn at their own pace.
Our nurturing environment helps children learn to express themselves, develop curiosity, and become independent and self-disciplined.
We believe that how children learn is as important as what they learn.
We teach values by living them. We actively affirm each child’s sense of self and unique cultural heritage, and demonstrate acceptance and respect of others.
We offer our children a multicultural, multiracial educational experience. We make every effort to use books and role models that portray men and women of all ethnic groups and in a variety of roles.
We teach consideration by being considerate of children and each other. We teach gentleness by treating the children gently. We teach respect for nature by caring for plants, flowers, and animals. We teach respect for others’ property by respecting the children’s property. We teach the value of love by loving the children.
We teach non-violence by offering our children problem solving strategies. Toy weapons and violent play are not permitted.
We give each child the opportunity to be a unique and special individual.
