Purpose

Early Childhood Education facilitates appropriate child development and ensures the health and safety of children in care.

CYD-ECE 1: Program Mission and Philosophy of Care

    A written mission statement is responsive to the needs and aspirations of the community, and sets forth the program’s goals.


  • CYD-ECE 1.02

    The program is guided by a philosophy that:

    1. provides a logical approach for how program activities will support the healthy development of children in care;  
    2. provides a foundation for inclusive, individualized care; and
    3. guides the development and implementation of activities and supports based on program goals and developmentally-appropriate practice in early childhood education.

    Interpretation: A program model or logic model can be a useful tool to help staff think systematically about how the program can make a measureable difference by drawing a clear connection between the needs of children, available resources, program activities and supports, program outputs, and desired outcomes.
