The three cornerstones of our early education program are confidence, individuality, and independence. We believe that as childcare providers, it is our duty to help establish these three characteristics in each student. DCCDS promotes confidence by creating a positive atmosphere in which children are praised for good behavior and recognized for individual accomplishments, no matter how big or small. We believe that this constant encouragement is vital in developing a child’s self-esteem and overall attitude towards life. Our daycare also promotes individuality by allowing children to express themselves through art, music, dance, and various creative tasks. Most importantly, DCCDS strives to instill independence within each child. We believe that giving our students the skills to act and make decisions on their own is the most valuable part of our jobs. Children today are the leaders of the future, and with confidence, individuality, and independence, we strongly believe that our children have the ability to make a lasting impact in this world.
