The philosophy of Early Development Services, Inc. is based on a set of strongly held beliefs
We believe children have the right to a nurturing, safe environment where they can feel comfortable and secure.
We believe in developing the “whole child” – social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and creative and that the agency staff has the responsibility to provide opportunities for this development to occur.
We believe children have to develop socially in order to be prepared academically.
We accept each child as a unique and worthy individual with a pattern of growth, personality, learning style, and family background which is respected and valued.
We provide developmentally appropriate activities that focus on the process of learning and help children enjoy successful experiences.
We strive to provide each child the opportunity to appreciate sameness and difference.
We strive to create a mutual respect between home caregivers and center caregivers.
We support and celebrate ethnic and family diversity.
