Philosophy Statement
The Birmingham Public Schools Early Childhood Center is committed to providing a nurturing, secure, educational setting for young children and their families. In a safe, age appropriate, engaging environment, children learn, explore, and make choices as they experience their world and its challenges. Our exemplary, play-based programs develop each child's unique potential. The process enhances physical, communication, emotional, social, creative, and intellectual growth. Staff and families continually work together to help young children achieve. Through character education, staff, children, and families, in partnership with the community, learn to value diversity and to foster individuality, self-confidence, love of learning, responsibility, positive attitude, and respect for themselves and others.
