VLC’s Philosophy •VLC and parents team up for the betterment of your child: A mutual open line of communication allows your child to truly feel safe. Families are encouraged to ask questions, to participate in the classroom, and to share anecdotes about their child. •VLC strives to maintain a safe and respectful environment, allowing for projects and creativity to flourish. •VLC is committed to teaching children problem-solving skills of all sorts. This is done by modeling expected behaviors, by a watchful but hands off approach, which encourages children to practice those skills, either with material or in social situations. One arena of practice is Dramatic Play: Children can almost always behave in a more mature way when they are pretending; this helps them reinforce the skills they need in everyday life. •While challenging children in their learning, VLC remains very watchful to remain developmentally appropriate for each child. •VLC adheres to the “Healthy mind in a healthy body” motto. This shows in our intentional use of gross motor play, our high quality nutrition and the vast array of activities that are tailored to your children’s interests as they learn: we strongly believe in relevant discovery and learning.
