Our Philosophy: Eyes on the Future believes that children are active learners who learn best through play. Children gain knowledge by moving, touching, seeing, hearing, smelling and tasting. As such, children are encouraged to experiment and to explore the people and objects that are in their environment. A physical environment that is safe, healthy and that contains a variety of materials enables children to safely explore their environment. We believe that all children move at their own pace through developmental stages. Our classrooms have been carefully designed to ensure that children progress and have success in social-emotional, physical, cognitive and language development.
