  1. 1. INTRODUCING LINDSY DOAN’S CHILD DEVELOPMENT HOME Licensed Family Home Daycare Lindsy Doan
  2. 2. BELIEFS AND VALUES Jean Piaget once said “The principle goal of education is to create men who are capable of doing new things, not simply of repeating what other generations have done-men who are creative, inventive and discoverers.” This quote no longer applies to just men, but to women as well. Children need love, support, dedication and interest. They grow at a phenomenal speed and make astounding discoveries in their communities and environments. By supporting the children's imaginations and discoveries, we are indeed preparing these wonderful children for a future. Their futures. To present as Piaget defined as people "who are creative, inventive and discoverers" we must first support the children as they are and encourage them to grow into people they want to be. Our facility believes in families. They play the most important role in each child's education. Our goal is to support families. Each child is unique and diverse. Every child deserves respect and support in their development. The program will not hinder their growth and goals, but challenge them to accomplish their dreams and discover answers to their questions. By working with families, we become a team to make sure that each child is supported with love, encouragement, respect and trust. Children's development and learning should be encouraged. Despite the experience and education that every educator has, we learn something new every day. Children should be given the same opportunity. By understanding their development and being a part of their new experiences, we cherish the time that we have with them during the first years of their life by providing positive growth and encouraging exploration. After all, the sky is no longer the limit and education is never ending.
