Effective childcare, daycare and early learning programs require a partnership between you as parents and us as care givers. Our common interest is the healthy development of your child.
We’ve provided information to introduce you to Learning Avenues, including the Background & History of our daycare centers in Vancouver, Washington, our Philosophy and Goals, and a printable version of our Parent Handbook, which contains these items as well as most policies and expectations. The Parent Handbook is required reading for parents of enrolling children. If you have further questions, please stop by one of our daycare centers or contact us and we’ll provide the information you need to develop a mutual understanding that will make our partnership valuable for your child.

- We believe that our primary task is to enhance, support, and strengthen a childs selfesteem.
- We believe that children learn by doing—through play.
- We provide a safe and healthy environment, which instills a sense of security.
- We help children develop personal self-control, independence, and the ability to make choices.
- We encourage a sense of cooperative empathy and respect for all children and adults without regard to race, religion, color, handicap, age, sex, or national origin.
- We implement new experiences in our curriculum to develop creativity and awareness of the environment, arts, and cultures. We also include experiences to develop social, emotional, physical, and intellectual skills.
- We recognize that each child is an individual and present a variety of activities and flexibility in responses to meet varying needs of individual children.
- We support childrens natural love of learning and build upon the cognitive skills that are introduced through play activities. Activities vary from the simple to the complex in order to provide both success and challenge.
- We include several approaches to guidance including restructuring of the environment, redirection, positive reinforcement, logical consequences, and cool-off time (when all other forms of guidance are ineffective).
- We acknowledge the parent as the primary educator of the child and work toward enhancement of parental goals.
- We encourage parent involvement.
