Program Philosophy

We believe children learn by doing, by exploration and through experience. We encourage children to be creative and imaginative in their artwork, storytelling and dramatic play. Our staff, of trained professionals, offers children choices that encourage this creativity, that are age appropriate and that foster a feeling of independence and self esteem in a safe, nurturing environment. Professional growth opportunities for the staff enhance the quality of our program.

Our Mission

The Irvine Child Development Center is organized and operated by a non-profit, non-sectarian, public benefit corporation. There is a volunteer Board of Directors made up of Parent and Community members. Our goal is the development of the whole child through:

Emotional Growth: To help the child learn to recognize his or her own feelings and to develop a sturdy and positive self-concept, confidence, emotional balance and control.

Social Growth: To help each child gain understanding, respect and empathy for others; learn to share; become a constructive, contributing member of groups and to function independently as well.

Cognitive Growth: To stimulate each child's natural curiosity and sense of wonder; to develop an understanding of concepts and an ability to communicate and question; and foster a sense of pleasure and excitement in learning.

Creative Growth: To stimulate and develop each child's self-expression, imagination and ability to discover new solutions to problems.

Physical Growth: To develop an awareness and enjoyment of individual physical capacities and an appreciation of a healthy body.
