The philosophy behind our curriculum is that children learn best by doing. This requires active thinking and learning by experimenting to find out how things work and to learn first-hand about the world in which we live. Our philosophy includes the components needed to nurture the learning and development that leads to kindergarten readiness. Our methodology is based on the standards and practices endorsed by the First Things First Quality First Program, The Creative Curriculum, the Arizona Department of Education’s Early Learning Standards and the National Association of the Education of Young Children’s (NAEYC) Early Learning Standards. All lessons are designed with this information based on early childhood development research and theory and developmentally best practices.
Children of Hope Child Development Center is committed to providing a positive first school experience within a Christian environment of understanding, acceptance and love. We understand the importance of these early years and our staff is focused on the miracle of each child. We are satisfied with nothing but the highest quality in our programs.
Excellence in education is a priority at Children of Hope. As a Quality First enrolled school, we hold ourselves to the highest industry standards and implement research backed best practices. All faculty participate in 18 hours of continuing education each year, with Lead Teachers possessing bachelors or masters degrees. Every teacher is CPR/First Aid certified, background checked and licensed through the state of Arizona. Our curriculum supports both the academic and the social/emotional growth of each child.
