Mission Statement

The Linda B. Chipkin Early Years Center recognizes the potential to learn and succeed in all children. We work with families, as a team, to ensure that the individual needs of our youngsters are met. We appreciate the unique qualities of each child, and strive to foster their growth through discovery of the world around them.

The philosophy of the Early Years Program is based on the belief that play is the best means of facilitating learning in young children. Learning takes place in a language based program, where children interact with each other, and their environment, through developmentally appropriate activities.
