Miss Dawn's Child Care

789 Walt Whitman Rd, Melville, NY 11747


At Miss Dawn's Child Care we provide a nurturing, safe and stimulating environment where a child can freely explore and discover at his/her own pace. Our mission is to provide each child with the early educational skills so that they can make successful age appropriate choices and decisions, express in a socially acceptable manner their ideas and feelings and are able to formulate and use age appropriate reasoning skills.

Miss Dawn's Child Care fosters social development and supports each child as they begin to understand their world. Our philosophy is based on the premise that children are active learners. We believe that active learning occurs spontaneously if an environment is enriched with materials that a child can choose to manipulate in many different ways. The environment at Miss Dawn's Child Care embraces a child's curiosity and fosters their active participation. That is why the activities chosen at Miss Dawn's Child Care promote language skills, social development, initiative, creative representation, logic and math.

The staff members at Miss Dawn's Child Care are committed to taking on the role of a facilitator. Their job is to guide each child through developmentally appropriate experiences. Each child's natural curiosity is stimulated to ask questions and to find solutions with at teachers constant guidance and support. The teacher's role is to enhance the child's endeavors by using verbal and non-verbal techniques, such as open-ended questions, which require a child to think and discuss their answers.
Our ultimate goal is to prepare our children in their early years for the successful transition into school and ultimately adulthood.
