How Our Preschool Teaches Ethics to Young Children
Attending preschool in Burlington provides children with a unique opportunity not only to develop their social skills and to get a “head start” on academics, but also to start developing a sense of ethics. Brant Children’s Centre is committed to helping children grow intellectually, socially, and ethically. Through our curriculum, our philosophy and our staff, we provide children with an introduction to ethics that they can build on for the rest of their lives.
A Focus on Personal and Social Development
An early childhood education setting is one of the first places where a child is confronted by the similarities and differences between him and herself and other children. It is critical, therefore, for preschools and child care centres to take their role in a child’s ethical development seriously. During the early years, children must learn to understand and respect others, even if they are different.
Personal and social development are key components in Brant Children’s Centre’s curriculum. When attending one of our programs, your child will be involved in activities that help him or her learn to interact with others in a respectful way. We teach children how to share, how to listen, how to take turns, how to help each other and work as a team, and how to solve conflicts in a positive and appropriate manner.
An Ethics-Based Philosophy
At Brant Children’s Centre, our motto is “a happy place to grow and learn”. We strive to create a healthy and safe environment for all children at our Burlington child care centre, which means putting ethics first. Our committed and caring team aim to model ethical behaviour that your child can look up to when away from home.
Each child at Brant receives individualized attention, helping him or her to build a strong sense of competence, confidence and self-worth. Ethical development is not only about how a child relates to others, but also about how a child feels about him or herself.
Brant’s preschool programs are developed and implemented by highly trained and knowledgeable individuals, chosen for their experience and empathy for young children. Our Supervisors are selected for their ability to show and model compassion and respect for others.
