For more than 50 years, Music Box has been dedicated to preparing young children for a lifetime of learning in a safe, nurturing environment. From the beginning, we have been committed to provide a fun, educational place where young children can learn and develop through hands-on, minds-on activities. Over the years, our curriculum has evolved to reflect innovations in early childhood development by providing the latest educational equipment and materials and updating our classroom environments.
Our staff has designed lesson plans with classroom themes and teaching materials that help provide children with the skills they need for success in school, yet are flexible enough to meet the unique needs and personality of each child. Most importantly, we have always been dedicated to working together with parents to help their children become confident, curious learners.
Every individual is unique. In planning our educational program, we always consider individuality as we know your child develops best when his uniqueness is respected. Our philosophy program provides your child with a continuing variety of sensory motor activities and extends the range of his experiences.
Children grow in self-confidence as they gain skill in using their bodies, as they improve the keenness of their perceptions, as they become more competent in using language, and as they succeed in making friends with other children their own age. Out of these relationships with equals may come some of the deepest satisfactions in life. One of the most values for your child in being a member of a group of equals, is the chance to build a more realistic concept of him/her self as a person apart from him/her membership in the family group.
We understand the sequences in which children's skills develop. We can identify transition points in learning and can, therefore, give effective help to your child through each successive stage.
Some day when my children are old
Enough to understand the logic that
Motivates a parent I will tell them:
I loved you enough to ask you where you
Were going, with whom, and what time you would be home.
I loved you enough to be silent and let you
Discover that your new best friend was a creep.
I loved you enough to stand over you for
Two hours while you cleaned your room.
A job that would have taken me 15 minutes.
I loved you enough to let you assume the responsibility for your actions even when the penalties were so harsh they almost broke my heart.
But most of all, I loved you enough to say "no"
when I knew you would hate me for it.
Those were the most difficult battles of them all.
I'm glad I won them because in the end you won something too.
