ECEP in Action

 
Our Belief Statement
 
We believe that . . .
  • early childhood education is the foundation of learning to learn and is fundamental to a child’s development and future success. We observe and document the children’s words and actions to incorporate into our emerging curriculum. This allows us to scaffold each child to develop the necessary skills for success in the future.
 
  • children are unique and learn in their own ways, with each child making an important contribution to the learning environment. Each child wants to be their own best. We create a learning environment where children are encouraged to explore a variety of materials in open-ended ways using all of their senses. We strive to meet each child where they are and provide the necessary tools to enhance their growth.
  • our role as educators is to support the social-emotional, creative and intellectual development of our students and to instill a love of learning that begins in early childhood. We provide a safe and trusting space where children can feel confident to try new things and meet their own success. In this space, children guide us toward learning experiences that interest and inspire them.
  • parents deserve a school environment where they can trust that both they and their children are respected for who they are. We embrace the uniqueness that each family brings to our community. We provide open and clear communication that allows families to partner in their children’s education and development both inside and outside the classroom.
  • our teaching staff shares the common goal of success for our students, our families, and our school community. This comradery and support is visible through the collaboration among teachers and with families as we celebrate the big and small moments in the children’s lives.
  • through our expertise, our dedication and our practice, we can make a difference in the lives of children and their families
