“What will my child learn at KinderCare?” This is the question most often asked by parents of young children as we show them around our center. Research has shown that young children learn best through active, hands-on experiences--in other words, children learn by doing. That's why at the Bedford Harwood KinderCare, we use play as the foundation for academic learning. We provide a curriculum that allows our teachers to organize and structure their environment to meet the needs of the individual children in their classroom. Our community provides both structured and unstructured open-ended activities to meet each child’s individual needs.Open-ended activities foster creativity and risk-taking, and give children the opportunity to test their ideas. Children develop at very different rates, but they all follow predictable patterns in stages and sequence of development. We recognize that development cannot be taught or hurried, but can be guided and encouraged.Here at Bedford Harwood KinderCare, we believe the most important thing we can give a child is a love for learning and so we encourage children to become independent, self-confident, enthusiastic, and inquisitive learners. They are encouraged to think for themselves, make decisions, develop problem-solving skills, and communicate their ideas.Overall, the staff at Bedford Harwood KinderCare work diligently to provide a strong foundation for our children and prepare them in all areas of development in a loving, caring environment where they feel safe and secure.
