Learning Objectives

Children Come First focuses on helping children build their physical, intellectual, emotional, and social skills.

Our activities are based on the following beliefs:

•Children learn by doing

•Process is more important than product

•The creativity of each child must be encouraged

•All activities are also opportunities to help each child develop responsibility

•Assessments on all children are completed three times a year and discussed with parents
