PHILOSOPHY AND GOALS
 

The philosophy of Kids Artistic Sense Enrichment Program is that children are intelligent, capable, curious, and eager learners. We are dedicated to enriching the lives of young children by helping each child reach their full potential in social, emotional, intellectual, physical and cognitive domains. In addition, we support children’s needs as we follow their interest with innovative “out-of-the-box” hands-on meaningful activities and experiences as well as using our community as a resource to support integrated curriculum. We provide a nurturing, respectful, caring and loving environment which encourages children to become active, creative, enthusiastic lifelong thinkers and learners. As children develop these practices they will participate in age appropriate activities. Additionally, they learn to share, take turns, negotiate, investigate, share ideas with peers, collaborate and have self and creative expression. These activities strengthen not only their artistic confidence, but also their self-confidence and prepare them for kindergarten as well as life. Our program services and operational strategies are a combination of the fundamentals of the Reggio Emila Approach to Early Childhood Education and the Montessori Educational Methods as well as the guidance of the development of motivated and balanced children through Development Appropriate Practice (DAP).

Parent Testimonials
“Sandra Caldwell is a professional, nurturing and creative teacher. She taught our daughter Kerry for two years of pre-school and she stimulated her growth intellectually, socially and emotionally. “Ms Sandra” created a caring, safe environment for both learning and play. Her creativity and love of children is unparalleled. Every day there was a new challenge... something different to explore. Kerry has a love of learning that will be with her for a lifetime and is currently thriving in Kindergarten. We are forever grateful to Ms. Sandra for the patience, enthusiasm, and upbeat attitude she shared with our daughter daily."

"Ms. Sandra is a superb teacher and a lovely person.  As parents, we were so fortunate to have Ms. Sandra caring for and teaching our child for two consecutive years.  It was evident to us daily just how well she connected with and understood her students.  However, this was made crystal clear in her comments made about our son at his graduation ceremony.  She really touched on who he is as an individual.  Ms. Sandra's methods are tender, yet firm, extremely creative and always exciting.  She is all about empowerment. Ms. Sandra is loved by her students and parents alike."
- Bernadette Campbell, Pacific Palisades
