Lily Pad Early Learning Center believes that a child learns best by doing what all children do best; play. We follow a blend of traditional learning and fostering self expression. Along with our guided curriculum, children are asked to explore their own emergent curriculum ideas. Here at Lily Pad we strive to develop strong thinking skills, problem solving tactics, and a more concrete sense of self to support their social-emotional side. We encourage children to work together using a dialogue of comparisons, negotiations and other interpersonal skills. We want children to see themselves as an individual belonging to the group with a balance of personal needs to the needs of others being met. We hope to grow each child's imagination and nurture their engagement with the world around them. Supporting families in raising strong children that can tackle the future.
