About Our Center
The Children’s Center provides a warm and nurturing environment for children that will promote each child’s physical, social, emotional, creative and intellectual development. Our philosophy is based on the belief that each child is unique. Because we understand that children are naturally curious, we know they learn best when allowed to explore and work together with adults and peers. As they are involved in meaningful play, they are able to build on what they already know. Classroom activities reflect these needs and foster independence, creativity, a sense of empathy and cooperation. We also know children need knowledgeable, nurturing, consistent teacher/caregivers who understand the stages of child development, respect family needs and promote cultural diversity. The staff is dedicated to building strong partnerships with families to enrich Children’s experiences.
The Children’s Center STEM Teaching Team is excited to embark on a project with support from the Idaho STEM Action Center and Boise State College of Education to conceptualize, design and build an outdoor classroom that supports early childhood inquiry and both fine and gross motor skills.
