A respect for children is the heart of WCC’s philosophy. We recognize and value each child’s individuality. We promote self-esteem and facilitate growth in each aspect of development.
We provide emotional development for children by building confidence, trust and independence. We want children to enjoy the school experience, to feel good about transitioning from home to school. We help children learn how to join, understand and play in a group.
We offer a curriculum rich in concrete experiences that expand a child’s knowledge and understanding. Through individual and group activities, skills in communication, language development, social studies, mathematics, science, pre-reading and problem solving are strengthened.
We view play as an essential part of development to any child. In the context of imaginative play, children are able to set up, resolve social and emotional conflicts, extend their ideas about the world, and expand conversational skills.
