At ITC, we believe that children learn by constructing understanding based on experiences. When children encounter new information, play with materials in differing ways and have meaningful exchanges with other children and adults, they are making sense of their worlds. Children have their own preferred strengths, learning styles, different interests, likes, dislikes and habits. As educators, we accommodate children by providing appropriate learning environments and by arranging learning opportunities that match their strengths and preferences.
"ITC recognizes the needs of each child and takes the opportunity to make the most of each teaching situation." - ITC Parent
Classroom Mission Statement
|Preschool 1||3 years by September||14 children, 2 teachers||We offer an environment that is welcoming and safe -one that provides abundant opportunities for growth by doing. We partner with children in their search for understanding of physical and social worlds by providing learning that is relevent to their interests. We view children as individuals and design curriculum that is appropriate to their development. We encourage exploration and experimentation as this approach leads to many discoveries as well as to greater self-confidence and independence.|
|Preschool 2||4 years by September||16 children, 2 teachers||Our goal is to provide a warm and welcoming environment that will encourage children to explore, grow and learn. We would like our classroom to feel secure, comfortable and relaxed so that children in our care will begin to take risks and grow more independent in their thoughts and actions. We wish to foster and celebrate the diversity within our group, while developing friendships and a sense of community.|
