Our Teaching Philosophy:
In Kokito Child Day Care, we believe that children experience the greatest growth when they feel secure and wanted. The most important part of our job is to create an atmosphere of unconditional love, support, and educational environment.
All children are treated with gentleness, honesty and respect, and we encourage them to treat others in this manner. Children learn through play, therefore we provide a variety of experiences, to expand their cognitive thinking.
Kokito Child Day Care is an advocate for open communication with parents. We believe that when providers and families have strong relationships, it creates a great community for every child achievements.
