Our Philosophy at Cottonwoods
Play is a form of exploration, communication, and expression.
At Cottonwoods, we believe that play is an essential part of each child’s physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development.
Children learn about turn taking, making mistakes, problem solving, planning, decision making, and creating. Through play, children get to know themselves and the world around them.
It is important that a child develops self-esteem. To aid in this process, we provide a safe environment by setting reasonable limits, we develop appropriate activities to ensure success for each child, and we create opportunities for the child to accept themselves and others.
