Our Mission

Our childcare center is committed to providing high-quality care to children and families.  We offer children the opportunity to use the natural world as a tool for learning. We believe in honoring children for who they are and recognizing the strengths that they already possess as a way to individualize learning opportunities.  

WEC provides an enriching experience which builds a foundation for lifelong learning.



Our Philosophy

 

Our play-based, emergent curriculum is set up to promote all areas of development based on the age of the group and the individual needs of each child. Emergent curriculum is initiated by the child, and it is constantly developing.  Teachers facilitate the child’s learning, and they work to give children the opportunity to dig deeper and construct further knowledge.

We believe that learning is a life-long process.  Our goal at Williston Enrichment Center is to teach children how to learn and how to use their current skills as building blocks for future learning opportunities. We allow children to experience natural consequences and use life experiences as teaching moments.

We treat our playgrounds and surrounding outdoor areas as outdoor classrooms; nature provides children with many learning opportunities that we cannot replicate indoors.

Our staff has built an environment that is safe and nurturing, and it remains flexible enough for children to build positive self-esteem. With teachers and families working together, we can all create a balance of consistency and flexibility; our students need to feel secure in their environment in order to thrive. With all of us working together towards a common goal, your children will experience excellent early care and education in a high-quality center.
