Program Philosophy

Our basic philosophy is the recognition of each child as a unique individual with varying interests, needs, and abilities. Therefore education is approached in an individualized manner, allowing children to progress at their own pace. It is our belief that the process of learning is more important than the content of learning. Because of the focus on process learning, activities are designed to emphasize the experiences children are having rather than what results from activities. It is less important that a child can copy a "project" than what a child creates, experiments, and discovers! While assisting children in learning, we are always conscious of our primary objective: to establish a warm, nurturing relationship with each child.

The children at Turtle Tales range in age from 18 months on up. The younger child learns much from the older ones, while the older child gains a sense of responsibility by helping and including the younger children in his/her play. As the children become older at Turtle Tales, they will have a different learning experience then she/he did when she/he first started. Each play situation becomes more intricate and involved for the older child.

We do not focus on how many girls or boys we have or how many of any certain age we have.  We celebrate the individual children we have and how they exist as a group.


Children Parents
To provide the warmth, support, and consistency necessary for each child's healthy emotional development. To provide quality care for the child while the parent(s) pursues work or other interests.
To provide an environment giving children the opportunity to learn by doing and to enjoy their learning. To provide support and information for their role in the development of their child's social, emotional, academic, and physical well being.
To provide an enriched environment which encourages the development of the "whole child". To provide an inviting and warm community where parents and children feel welcome.

*Half Day verses Whole Day:

*We only provide care for full days. When your child reaches four years old, you can either stay with us for the full day (we will make sure

your child is ready for Kindergarten), or they can go to a different preschool program for the whole day.

We look forward to hearing from you, so please call with any questions and we will go from there:-)
