About Us

OUR MISSION STATEMENTWebsite Duck

 Our goal at Everything Grows is to provide a safe, caring environment that is educationally creative and secure to significantly enhance a child’s trust and learning through a structured yet playful setting. Your child will interact with others in a fun and positive way. As every parent knows, children advance and mature at their own rate and at times when they feel most comfortable. We believe that children learn at different levels and will encourage them to progress at their own pace in a flexible and non-stressful manner, with multiple points of entry into projects and activities. We believe that while learning can certainly be fun for children, it must be developed primarily to stimulate the child’s desire to learn on their own. As children are, by nature curious, we seek to channel that curiosity into meaningful and useful educational directions. Through constant observations, patterns can be detected which can indicate the need for a gentle nudge in one direction or the other. As opposed to other programs, which may be more “sterile” or “institutional” in nature, we strive to make all of the children in our care feel relaxed, secure, valued and comfortable. Our centers reflect this by the “home away from home” atmosphere parents and children alike feel once they are through our doors. Our comprehensive curriculum is designed to nurture the full range of developing skills and interests of every child and to meet the NYS core curriculum standards implemented in 2012. Emotional Development – Creative Art – Language and Communication – Science and Nature – Dance Classes – Socialization skills – Dramatic Play-Computer Education – Gross and Fine Motor Skills – Music and Movement-Daily Outdoor play – Health, Nutrition and Physical Fitness – Nurture the love of Books and Reading – Character Education such as respect for others and their property, responsibility, sharing, citizenship, cooperation and self-control-Foster confidence and self esteem – Encourage curiousity, creativity and problem solving – Teach good hygiene and self-help skills – Exposure to community visitors and educational field trips..

PARENT COMMUNICATION

Continuous communication between home and school is very important during these preschool years. We believe parents and teachers should be partners during these years and beyond. We invite you to visit our centers anytime. We encourage you to contact your child’s teacher or any staff member with questions or concerns about your child’s special needs. Please know that our doors are always open and we will do whatever it takes to make your child’s experience with us a happy and healthy one!
