Child Development Center
"Helping to build the foundation for a better future."
Program PhilosophyThe Los Angeles Mission College, Campus Child Development Center begins with the belief that children actively participate in their own learning and that each child is special and unique. The Center believes that each child has his/her individual needs, feelings, backgrounds, and each must be responded and respected.
The Center believes that education of the whole child is important and the teacher's responsibility is to provide opportunities for the child to flourish socially, physically, emotionally, and cognitively.
The Center provides a positive, safe, and reassuring environment for the child to have authentic and concrete experiences which enhance the child's self-esteem, help the child acquire, practice and master basic daily living skills, and strengthen his/her pre-readiness skills as the child demonstrates physical and emotional readiness.
The Center follows an emergent eclectic curriculum that fosters growth and development in young children and practices a non-sexist and multicultural approach.
