Welcome to Skribbles Learning Center!

Why Skribbles Learning Center

We’d like to welcome you to the Skribbles family. We know that your decision will not come easy. It’s tough to leave your children in the care of others, but we promise to give your children the utmost happiness and safety available. While you are busy at work, keep in mind that your children will be busy at play. Although the separation may seem difficult, your children will have a much easier time with it than you think. Your children will be provided with unlimited activities to encourage their social growth and independence. They will also meet many new friends and will look forward to coming to school each day. As the day comes to an end and you are together with your children, talk to them about their day. They will be eager to share their stories with you and you will be delighted to hear what they have learned. Your children will find a closeness with our staff and they will learn to love and trust their teachers. We are confident that you will be pleased with the Skribbles way of caring and learning.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide families with the high quality care that is needed, along with offering the children a happy, safe and fun learning environment.

Creative Curriculum

The Creative Curriculum’s foundation is based off the findings of six main theorists. Through their views on children, the curriculum is constructed as a guideline for how we as a center can be united to provide the best possible care.

T. Berry Brazelton and Abraham Maslow believed that children need their basic needs met, which include safety, belonging and esteem. Erik Erikson and Stanley Greenspan focused on the necessity of having supporting, trusting relationships with adults, which increases social, emotional development. Jean Piaget and Lev Vygotsky discussed how interactions with others are crucial in cognitive development.

As a center, we use these principles to help make decisions about the care and education of the children. The teachers use their knowledge of child development, the knowledge of children’s individual needs, strengths and interests, and the knowledge of the social and cultural context within each child. By using these theorists’ beliefs, we have a solid base to begin when planning for your child.
