Are you skeptical about daycare?

Are you skeptical about daycare? Is it hard to trust your child with another persons definition of care giving? Do you find that most daycares don't do enough, while others do too much? While our education system is under fire, we have lost the simplicity of childhood in trying to make the grade or pass the test. Daycare centers, schools and institutions of learning are filled with under paid, over worked and inadequately trained people. Teachers are forced to teach large amounts of curriculum in short periods of time, leaving little to no room for children’s learning differences, creativity, expression, and most of all individualism. Children are being unfairly labelled and categorized as having learning inabilities, when its actually the educational system itself that is poorly structured. Parents are forced to work more in order survive leaving less time for family structured routines and nurturing. Where does this leave a family? A child? Here at L'Infanzia we still believe in the innate growth processes of children. We believe that each child is the protagonist of his/her path in life. We support the simple, gentle unfolding of a child’s potential through exploration, discovery and hands on learning objectives. L'Infanzia is a developmental play based learning group. Come explore the other side of education.
