Program philosophy: 

At Cliff Drive Care Center, we support you, as parent or guardian, as primary teachers of your children. We make collaboration and communication with your home a priority, and we hope to be a resource for you in building a healthy home by providing parent workshops and parent education opportunities.

During your child’s time here, we encourage emotional, physical, social, and cognitive growth with curriculum tailored to each stage of development. We believe children operate best within a simple set of guidelines: to take care of others, take care of yourself, and take care of our environment. We work to create a warm and loving environment where children have meaningful relationships with their teachers and peers as teachers assist children in becoming independent and responsible. We promote creativity and kinesthetic learning through playtime activities and through utilizing our outdoor classroom, letting child initiated exploration and curiosity lead the way.
