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 a partnership with administrators, teachers, and parents provide the foundation and skills children need to be productive members of society.
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
We believe in educating the whole child; every child is a unique gift, and each may develop through the awareness and support of parents, teachers, administrators, and significant others. The student's individual needs may develop physically, spiritually, intellectually, socially, and morally. Students are guided to set a higher level of self-esteem by being encouraged to reach their goals. Students come to appreciate the gifts of other students and 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 effort for a child to be successful.
Teachers communicate and work with parents, support staff, and administration to affect the child's highest level of achievement. The child's progress is continually evaluated and reported to formulate realistic expectations of the child's abilities. A curriculum is created considering 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 environment for the students.
Each of us at " It Takes A Community To Raise A Child" represents 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.
It Takes A Community To Raise A Child is a 501c3 not-for-profit.
