Philosophy & Teaching Standards
Our teaching philosophy at Generations Learning Center is to establish a safe, warm, nurturing environment that stimulates a child’s natural interests and helps children develop autonomy, self-esteem, self-discipline, self-regulation, communication skills, and a passion for learning that stretches into adulthood. At GLC, we incorporate the philosophies of Maria Montessori, Jean Piaget, and Reggio-Emilia. We believe that children are more likely to be engaged in environments that are set up in such a way that are powered by the children. This type of environment originates from the interests of the child and is framed by the teacher. We believe that children can reach their full developmental capacity by constructing their own knowledge through inquiry play in both large and small group settings as well as through one-on-one teacher directed activities. We also believe that children learn best through repetition, routine, and saturation. We strongly encourage children to communicate their individual interests to us and from there, we can set up an environment, task, project, or center that is specific to their interests. We want each child to be constantly involved in structured, hands-on, natural indoor and outdoor environments that are set up specifically for different social, emotional, physical, and academic skills. We believe children should be given choices each day to engage in both indoor and outdoor activities using different educational manipulatives that stimulate different senses and meet each child's learning needs.
All teachers are highly qualified and trained in the areas of education. Many of our teachers have a college degree and we have staff members on site that are CPR and First Aid certified. The love of children and learning are evident by the acute care each child receives. We choose faculty members who love the early childhood profession and have a strong, positive curiosity about life that sparks confidence and joy in those around them. Above all, employees at Generations Learning Center believe that Jesus is the Son of God and the Bible is God breathed.
