Anna Bing Arnold Children's Center


Drum Circle

The program practices at the Children's Center are based on our beliefs about how children learn and should be treated, about the importance of families to a successful school environment, and about the role of teachers in making it all happen.

Central to our philosophy is our view of children as curious, competent and capable learners who are active participants in constructing their knowledge of the world.
We believe that each child is unique and deserves respect, consistency, caring, and challenge as they grow. Further, we believe that:

Young children's developmental tasks are to build trust, learn social skills, construct their knowledge of the physical and social world, and develop positive self esteem. These tasks are best supported by a program that provides developmentally appropriate activities, well trained and consistent staff, and a safe, healthy and challenging learning environment.
