Young Learners Philosophy

Our Goal: Happy, Healthy Children from Head to Toe!

Cindy, the Director of Young Learners

We believe that the most critical aspects of a child’s development are a healthy sense of individuality and self-worth, an appreciation of the enjoyment and benefits of play and an understanding that the mind and body work together, and that taking care of both is the best way to feel good about one’s self. Our classes include a balance of activities that enhance both physical and mental skills. Each child’s individual strengths are identified and developed. We believe the exploration of many activities is essential for becoming excited about learning.
We also believe that a safe and happy atmosphere is necessary for children to achieve their full potential and to discover their own unique abilities. We strive to provide a comfortable, accepting, loving and secure atmosphere–one where parents will feel confident leaving their children and children will be excited to be.

The new building is wonderful! The classrooms are big and filled with natural light. The colorful, engaging décor totally captures the spirit of the creative play curriculum. And I absolutely love the indoor gym, with its room for both group and individual play. In Oregon, it is a must! Kudos to Director Cindy Canfield for all of her hard work in making the move to the new school a resounding success!
