Panda’s philosophy of child care: We believe that high quality, developmentally appropriate programs should be available to all children and their families and should be applied to the four components of Early Childhood programs: curriculum, adult-child interactions, relations between the home and program, and developmental evaluation of children. We believe children learn through play and a good program will provide opportunities for all levels of development and types of play.

Every child is treated with respect and consideration. Panda staff listen to the children and respond to them in a respectful and appropriate manner. We support children’s respectful peer interaction, acknowledge children’s expressed feelings, and treat their feelings as valid.
