Our focus will strengthen relationships between the child and the important adults in the child's life. Each child is encouraged to have a lifelong joy for learning and respect for others. Our program is focused on these guiding principles:
Relationships are central
Play is primary context for learning
Learning is integrated
Intentional teaching enhances children's learning experiences
75% of all learning is visual. For a child with visual impairment, skills are learned functionally, developmental milestones are kept on track and independence is consistently promoted. We use sensory integration to maximize residual vision, strengthen compensatory skills and develop auditory perception. Four classrooms for up to 48 preschoolers were newly built in 2014 and are staffed by teachers of the visually impaired and child development specialists.
