                                MISSION STATEMENT 

"One Step by 100 persons is better than 100 steps by one Person."

             ~Koichi Tsukamato, president, Wacoal Corp, Japan

It Takes A Community To Raise A Child is a 24-hour seven days a week multi programmatic child care center. Based on the premises of the African proverb "It Takes A Village To Raise A Child"; we are a forum that believes through partnership with administrators, teachers, and parents provide the foundation, and skills children need to be productive members of society.

                                    EDUCATIONAL PHILOSPHY

Skill to do comes of doing; knowledge comes by eyes always open and working hands; and there is no knowledge that is not power.

                                ~Ralph Waldo Emerson.

It Takes A Community To Raise A Child is a facility of learning, which

the students', individual needs so that they may develop physically, spiritually, intellectually, socially, and morally. We believe in educating the whole child; every child is a unique gift, and each may develop through awareness and support of parents, teachers, administrators, and significant others. Students are guided to set higher level of self esteem by being encouraged to reach their goals, students come to aprieciate the gifts of other students as well as to realize, and respect differences in abilities and talents.

Parents are the child's first educators. Administration, and teaching staff realize the difficulties parents face in raising a child today, and it takes a collaborative efforts in order for a child to be successful.

Teachers communicate, and work with parents , support staff and administration in order to affect the child's highest level of achievement. The child's progress is continually evaluated and reported to formulate a realistic expectations of the child's abilities. A curriculum is created taking into consideration the child's mental, physical, social, and emotional capabilities. As surrogate parents for the student, teachers are dedicated and nurturing. They create a secure, loving, and intellectually challenging envioroment for the students.

Each of us at " It Takes A Community To Raise A Child" is a representative of the beliefs and principles that our childcare center upholds. That principle is to enhance scholarship with a solid foundation, and a continuing journey of incisive for knowledge.
