PHILOSOPHY AND OVERVIEW OF CAMBRIDGE CHILD DEVELOPMENT CENTER:
We believe children learn through play. The program reflects a developmental approach to working with young children that emphasizes exploration and creativity. Lesson plans are designed to meet individual needs in small and large groups, through active and quiet activities. Using community resources, support services such as: mental health services, speech and language, health and dental hygiene are provided to enhance the quality of the programs.
We provide developmentally appropriate activities and an environment that nurtures young children, encourages them to make positive choices, promotes independence and involves families in all aspects of the program. Staff working with the children and families focus on building not only the child’s self-esteem but also that of the parents. The program connects with community resources, providing accessible and affordable services so that the child’s and family’s needs are met.
