Our Theory of Teaching
Day Early Learning’s Theory of Teaching and Learning is the foundation for how we accomplish our mission to prepare children to thrive in Kindergarten and beyond.
The Early Essentials
We empower children with essential skills to be successful in kindergarten and beyond by building their core knowledge and abilities to process new information and adapt:
Infusing flexible thinking strategies
Building confidence to explore and take initiative
Sparking curiosity about the world around them
Drawing out effective expression of ideas
Engineering collaboration among children and with teachers
Strengthening persistence and resilience
How Children Learn

Responsive and caring relationships establish the secure base from which children can explore the world.
Play is crucial to children’s physical, intellectual and social development.
Each child must be understood within the context of their individual family, community and experiences.
Access to Resources
Each child has access to the educational resources they need to thrive.
Each child’s positive attributes are identified and recognized.
Each child thrives in the context of predictable relationships, routines and actions
