At Campus Child Center 
We Work to Create a Place Where…

…children are valued for their sense of wonder, their genuine curiosity and need to explore, and their natural desire to learn.

families are valued for the support they provide their children, for the partnerships they build with our staff, for their eagerness to help and for their willingness to entrust their children into our care.

…staff are valued for their ability to work together for the benefit of the children, for their commitment to continual program evaluation and improvement, for their energy and enthusiasm, for their ability to design and implement well-planned curriculum, and for their capacity to build relationships with and make use of resources within the community.

…all are valued for their unique abilities and ideas, for their ability to play, for their love of laughter, for the respect they give one another, and for their capacity to trust, lean on and learn from one another.
