"AN EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY FOR YOUR CHILD’S MOST IMPORTANT YEARS.
The philosophy of Strong Start is that all children deserve the best possible early care and education through:
An inquiry-based curriculum that responds to children’s curiosity and interests, while at the same time teaching skills and dispositions necessary for academic and life success
Providing an educational experience that happens “from the inside out” so that intrinsic motivation to learn develops
Fostering social and emotional intelligence using positive behavior guidance that teaches self-regulation and confidence
A spacious and comfortable learning environment where children are physically and emotionally secure
Qualified teachers that are intentional, responsive, and reflective in planning learning experiences that address the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical needs of young children
State of the art equipment and research-based instruction that provide every advantage in supporting learning and development
Developmentally appropriate utilization of technology
Supporting family needs in every possible way
The curriculum is built upon the Connecticut Early Learning and Development Standards that begin a continuum of learning from birth through preschool, and aligns with state and national standards for kindergarten through grade three."
