Underlying Philosophy <ul><li>At Prima Day Care they believe that every child has the drive to learn, that teachers are co-learners because they learn from the children as they teach the children. They believe that this constant cycle of learning unlocks the child’s potential. “The child is like a little scientist exploring and experimenting on his or her environment on a quest to find answers to his or her never-ending stream of questions.” </li></ul><ul><li>( ) </li></ul><ul><li>At Prima Day Care their “Mission and Vision” is:  </li></ul><ul><li>“ To help children see themselves as individuals and encourage them to continually express themselves in their own ways.  </li></ul><ul><li>To provide a safe environment and an orderly atmosphere.  </li></ul><ul><li>To teach concepts through structured and unstructured PLAY.  </li></ul><ul><li>To teach the child to become an independent and active thinker.  </li></ul><ul><li>To inculcate proper values and good habits.  </li></ul><ul><li>To monitor through teacher observations and security cameras, and to give constant feedback to the parents.  </li></ul><ul><li>To encourage family participation through varied activities.  </li></ul><ul><li>To enhance leadership qualities.” </li></ul><ul><li>( ) </li></ul>(
