MDE School’s mission is to provide a loving environment for all children with delayed communication and language processing skills, while keeping a 4-1 ratio. We believe that all children should be given the opportunity to learn in a child-directed, developmentally appropriate environment, where learning takes place in a meaningful and natural manner. Each child’s self-worth and self confidence is highly regarded as we foster the development of healthy, self-assured individuals. Children will experience dedicated, loving and compassionate educators to guide them to achieve their maximum potential.
MDE School believes that children learn best while experiencing all aspects of the curriculum in a developmentally- appropriate classroom. Opportunities for learning occur at all times of the day and we capitalize on these opportunities as often as possible. Our teachers are trained to recognize these learning moments and guide your children to make the best of them. The classroom is structured with an emphasis on language and communication to promote independence and self-advocacy.
We believe that teachers must lovingly guide and redirect the children to help them learn to coperate with their peers to have positive, educational experiences that will encourage and enhance their growth and development.
It is our responsibility to model appropriate use of language and action at all times. We will continuously provide opportunities to teach the children age appropriate skills for conflict resolution.
We encourage parents to communicate with the teachers and director to maximize your child’s total learning experience.
