OUR PHILOSOPHY

 

At Up Before Sunrise, our educational philosophy centers on the child. Our approach is based on the concept of learning to learn. We provide a one-on-one learning environment. We are committed to helping your child develop a positive self-concept and begin to develop the cognitive, social, emotional, and physical skills necessary for success in the school environment.

We believe that our safe, clean and stimulating learning rooms create a healthy learning environment. We provide children with a warm and nurturing atmosphere that encourages and supports a child's social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development. Up Before Sunrise believes learning happens through play as well as structured and hands-on experiences.

Parents are the most significant adults in a child's life. We strive to create mutual respect between parents and providers - a partnership for the benefit of the child. We encourage daily communication between parents and providers, and will provide a daily report on your child's progress.
