Our Program Philosophy
At College of the Redwoods Child Development Center we believe children are capable and competent. We are committed to children's potential and their enjoyment of life. The CDC develops children's disposition for curiosity, persistence, resourcefulness, problem solving, and creativity. We are a community of learners where children and adults explore their world together.
Children gain knowledge and develop skills in a play-centered environment. A play-based curriculum encourages children to explore and experiment, constructing knowledge from their play. Teachers provide a variety of experiences based on the interests and development of children as individuals and as members of a group.
The staff works in collaboration with families to create an atmosphere respectful of each child and family. Family members are welcome to become active participants in our learning community. Together we are working toward a high quality, enriching educational experience for children and those who care for them.
