Infants & Children
“The important thing is not so much that every child should be taught, as that every child should be given the wish to learn.” – John Lubbock
Our mission is to enrich the lives of children, seniors and their families throughout our diverse community. ONEgeneration provides families with the opportunity for natural encounters between generations. Our unique Intergeneration Program provides for daily opportunities for the children to interact with our “neighbors”, the seniors.
Through exciting activities such as creative art, cooking, movement, gardening and games, we establish caring connections between children and seniors. These interactions help children acquire new interests, skills and learn the meaning of acceptance, cooperation and compassion. We recognize the value of these connections and provide positive and developmentally appropriate interactions for our older and younger participants.
ONEgeneration childcare provides a nurturing, diverse environment where children can develop socially, emotionally, cognitively and physically. Our daily practices incorporate emergent curriculum and anti-bias curriculum which stimulate each child’s unique interests, curiosity and sense of discovery.
Ultimately, our mission is to enhance the development of social skills, relationships, respect for others and oneself, self-help skills, autonomy, peaceful conflict resolution and the empowerment of one’s own ideas and feelings leading to success in school and life.
