Philosophy / Mission Statement:
Our Daycare Centre is designed to create an environment of trust, where each child feels safe and secure both physically and emotionally. The Centre is a learning place where social and intellectual growth occur as each child experiences him or herself in relationship to others and the environment, through play.
In a safe and trusting environment each child will learn to recognize, respect and support the rights of others. Each child has the right to move at his or her own pace and to develop at an individual rate.
By being provided with an atmosphere which is friendly, supportive, accepting and positive, each child will have the freedom to make decisions and choices, thus developing self-confidence and self-reliance.
We believe that daily doses of hugs, humor and smiles, together with continuing individual attention, will keep our Centre a safe and friendly place.
Tempe Tots Daycare was established in 1987 and has been operating with the same staff for over twenty-five years. This is a play based centre which is located in a home setting, specifically designed with the daycare in mind.
The daycare runs a full preschool program and incorporates a music program based on the well-known Kodaly and Orff approaches, which is taught at the Tempe Heights Studio of Music Enjoyment, right next door.
