Ages 8 weeks -5yrs
Each class has a team of dedicated and qualified staff committed to meeting each child's individual personal and academic needs.
Eugene Creative Care values every child as unique and believes each should have an opportunity to play, explore and be engaged in a variety of experiences in order to learn and grow in all areas. In doing so, these experiences provide the early framework and greatest potential for continued success across a lifetime.
Our programs are developed with the whole child in mind. Guided by consistent, caring, and competent role models, children are given time, space, and opportunities to grow socially, emotionally, cognitively and physically.
These values and beliefs guide Eugene Creative Care in making decisions effecting learning environments & curriculum, classroom diversity, partnerships with families, and the development of our staff. Our overall goals are:
To model our classroom experiences using current early childhood methodologies and Developmentally Appropriate Practices (DAP).
To ensure the inclusion of all children with varied abilities, interests and cultural backgrounds.
To provide resources, supports and opportunities for families to be actively involved in their child's learning and growth.
And to provide resources, supports and opportunities for ongoing training and education to our highly qualified teaching staff.
