At The Mount Carmel Early Childhood Center (TMCECC) we believe that every child has an innate passion for learning, and that through play young children begin to understand their place in the world.
At TMCECC each child’s curiosity and creativity is nurtured as they actively explore their natural environment and community. Children’s interests guide the curriculum and are often the basis for themes and projects explored. By investigating real life experiences in their communities, children make sense of their world. Learning about themselves, their families and their community through hands-on activities and exploring topics which emerge from their interests empowers children as learners.
As facilitators of the curriculum, teachers reinforce the learning by providing activities to enrich children’s experiences. In an organized, serene, center-based classroom teachers observe and support the children as they grow and develop at their own unique pace, respecting each child’s diverse learning style. Together the children, their families and their teachers create a community of lifelong learners.
