Philosophy

Morning Star Child Development Center is dedicated to the fulfillment of the social, emotional, and intellectual needs of each child enrolled in the center.

These needs determine the programs we design, select, and establish.

Evidence shows that the early years, from birth to age six, are the most formative. Gradual sequential learning at this stage can be easy, fun, and important to a developing child.

During the early years, the child learns with the greatest ease and is most responsive to the practical phases of teaching.

To the young child. learning is a natural function of childhood and occurs effortlessly in a nurturing and creative environment.

The Morning Star curriculum focuses on the individual needs and interests of our children.

This self-directed learning program encourages children to freely explore their world and the role they play in it. Detailed and daily communication with parents ensures consistency between home and preschool activities.

Our curriculum is also based on the Tennessee Early Learning Developmental Standards (TNELDS) as well as criteria set forth by Three Star and NAEYC.

Our highly trained staff is commited to caring for your child and also presenting them with the greatest gift of a life time, instilling in them a love of learning, exploring, and creativity.
