Kindertown goals are to provide:
J A safe environment
J A nurturing environment
J A learning environment à Learning is not necessarily the ABC’s and 123’s, but is also the learning of values. The learning of honesty, respect, self–reliance, and potential, self-discipline, and moderation, the values of being; dependable, love, sensitivity to others, kindness, friendliness, and fairness are the values of giving.
J A proper approach to discipline à Since children occasionally needs discipline, it is important that we share a similar philosophy with the parents, so that the child is not too confused as to where the boundaries are and what is expected of him/her. Children are taught which behaviors are inappropriate, and why, and given alternatives that are acceptable. In this way, the behavior is being changed, without making the child feel “bad” or unloved. This helps develop their self-esteem, and teaches them how to handle difficult situations themselves in the future.
J And to foster unconditional love à this kind of love is very important to us because children should not grow up feeling that in order to be loved and cared for, they must meet numerous conditions.
