Our philosophy at Quality Time is based on respect and appreciation for each child and
each family in our community . Our program is nurturing, relationship based and family-
centered. We provide a warm, inviting and stimulating environment that is developmentally appropriate for young children. Each child’s individual social, emotional, creative, physical, and cognitive growth is encouraged, valued and supported.
We believe that children are competent individuals who can construct their own meaning of their experiences. Trust and self-esteem are the foundation upon which all learning rests. We recognize that children are naturally curious and engage in active exploration to make sense of their world. Our role, as your child’s caregiver, is not to provide all the answers for them. Rather, the occasion for discovery and learning. We encourage all children to develop their individual strengths and appreciate each child’s unique contribution they offer to the community.
At QT, your child has endless opportunities to discover and learn about themselves, others and the environment in an atmosphere that encourages harmonious and meaningful relationships. We value cooperative relationships between children, adults, and caregivers and strive to provide an environment that is supportive and will serves as a platform for children and their families to build a strong community. Within the QT community there are extending opportunities for all to understand and accept cultural differences within each family, through thoughtful observation, discovery and celebration.
We believe that it is important for children to have an understanding of what it is to belong to a community; as part of their preschool, as part of their family, and as part of the wider community—our city, our country, our world.
