Place to Grow

Children will grow taller and stronger in just about any environment, but there are so many other aspects to their growth as they find their place in their families, in their communities, and in the world. The teaching team in a Place to Grow creates an atmosphere that nurtures each child's growth: physically, emotionally, socially, and cognitively.

Joy is a key component of brain development and growth, so every day we intertwine smiles and laughter into our activities. We create daily routines that give the children responsibility and teach them fine motor skills, as well as care for themselves and their environment. Our topics of exploration and our learning centers are based on children's interests and activities, and are geared to challenge the child at whatever level he or she is at. Recently we have done projects on bones, light, and water, just to name a few.
