Philosophy

All William Penn Center programs are guided by the principle of developmentally appropriate practice. Our staff embraces the view that each child is a unique person with an individual pattern and timing of social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development.

Our center offers a "hands on" approach to learning. This style of early childhood education is designed to foster creativity and expanded self-expression. William Penn Center teachers manifest their respect for children by encouraging them to think for themselves, make decisions, work toward their own solutions, and express their own ideas and feelings.

The William Penn Center embraces the belief that parents are the first and most important teachers of their children. Parents are encouraged to participate in a variety of center activities, including birthday and holiday celebrations, walking trips, field trips, parent-child experiential evenings, fundraising events, and social activities. Parents are welcome visitors in the classroom at all times.
