Philosophy and Curriculum
Learning through creative play and intergenerational programming for infants through Preschool
At all SALMON Centers for Early Education, we strive to provide a supportive environment with an appropriate blend of structured educational and social time for all of our children.
SALMON Centers recognize that the development of a well-adjusted individual is dependent upon the early years of their life. Of foremost importance to us is each child’s social and emotional development in a nurturing environment that includes attention to their safety and security. Evidence supports our belief that social and emotional readiness is crucial to a successful kindergarten transition, early social success and later accomplishments. To support this, we provide daily activities designed to allow children to be active participants in a setting that promotes each child’s sense of security and self-esteem.
We’re proud of what we offer: a healthy, loving environment in which each and every child receives the appropriate nurturing, guidance and stimulation to reach his or her fullest potential.
Children need plenty of exposure to real objects and experiences before they are ready to understand the meaning of symbols such as letters and numbers. Learning takes place as young children touch, manipulate and experiment with things and interact with people.
SALMON Centers welcome and respect all children and their families, regardless of race, religion, cultural heritage, political beliefs, national origin, disability, marital status, or sexual orientation.
Meet the Team
I am delighted to guide the Northbridge campus alongside the talented, dedicated team treating our residents, clients and their families with care and concern. Working for SALMON as a physical therapist and department director led me to train as an administrator here. My positive experiences and background in different service levels has me confident that we offer people the best place for care as well as the best place to work.
