About Us

t Summerfield Child Care Center it is our mission to provide a creative, nurturing and stimulating atmosphere in which children are active participants.  We offer an environment where children feel free to explore their uniqueness while learning through play in a multi sensory way.  Our talented, energetic, professional staff works together to positively impact the quality of life of the families in our community.
We believe education is based on beliefs about human development and human relationships.  At the core is respect; for each person, for all life and for their environment.  Respect for each child’s uniqueness leads to trust which is essential for learning and growth.
Each human is a uniquely endowed individual having a whole life in a whole learning environment.  Teaching and learning are inseparable.  Learning and growth are what happens when people work and play together.  Learning about oneself is part of learning about others, not about winning or competition.  Therefore, your child will not necessarily be bringing home a “project” each day.  His or her entire day is a learning experience, whether it is on the playground or eating lunch.  The process of learning is more important than the product.

Children need ample time and space to explore and work at their own pace and learning style.  Classroom experiences are designed to encourage involvement and risk taking using multi-sensory materials.  As children make appropriate choices and are involved in their work they acquire a positive attitude toward learning.  Learning is great fun!
