In Twinkle Little Star Center, we believe that good childcare depends upon consistent caregiving in a home-like atmosphere. Children grow and learn best in a safe environment that provides opportunities to explore, create and communicate with other children and adults. These groups function independently, following routines appropriate to individual needs.
The Center program is designed to include both planned and spontaneous activities in response to children’s interest. Experiences with music, movement, art, language and building are incorporated into daily plans. Regularly schedule snacks and meals, rest time, indoor and outdoor play, and routines in physical caregiving promote the child’s health, comfort and ability to care for him/herself. There is maximum flexibility for the children as a group and as individuals.
Children are encouraged to develop a positive self-image, to learn inner controls and to cooperate with peers and caregivers. Clearly defined limits help them recognize and accept their emotions and express their feelings as they grow and feel secure in the world around them.
