Baby MacBean Child Care Homes exist to provide a safe, developmentally appropriate environment for infants and toddlers. Our focus is to provide a stimulating early care and education experience which promotes each child's social and emotional growth, as well as physical and cognitive development.
We use an integrated model for the care and education of infants and toddlers using Magda Gerber's respectful approach. In the parents' absence, children need adults who will both nurture and educate them, or act as an educarer. As opposed to a teacher, who educates, and caregiver, who nurtures, the educarer does both; thereby providing a continuum of care from parent to educarer. Providing this continuum from family to childcare is a fundamental component of our program.
