Mission & Philosophy
Children are mighty learners; therefore it is my mission to empower them through play in a stimulating, safe and nurturing environment.
The Hummingbird Dayhome program philosophy emphasizes the relationship between the child and their environment. It is inspired by the Reggio-Emilia approach, where children are viewed as capable and independent citizens of the world.
All experiences are based on the interests of the child. Through observations and conversations with the children, I come to understand what they are curious about and try to represent this in an experience that caters to their level of development.
I utilize as many natural materials as possible in experiences not only to reduce the environmental impact, but also to reduce the amount of plastic and unhealthy materials children come in contact with.
In all, it is my mission to provide children with a variety of learning opportunities to enrich their developmental growth
