Program Description

The Winston Prouty Center for Child and Family Development provides inclusive education and family support to promote the success of children and families.

Our staff recently collaborated to come up with this statement on our image of a child: “We regard children as capable, strong and autonomous. We believe that they are observers who approach the world with curiosity and a desire to learn. We believe in their capacity to be problem-solvers who can think creatively and work collaboratively. We believe that children, like all of us, are seeking to find ways to belong, and need time and space to express their emotions. We strive to create a joyful, predictable, caring and authentic environment, in which they can explore, learn and grow fully into the unique and important/valuable individuals that they are.”

We Value . . .
Inclusion: We believe children, families and staff benefit from participating in an environment where everyone feels they belong, where every effort is made to accommodate differences and individual needs, and where everyone’s uniqueness is celebrated.

Learning: We believe in fostering a culture of learning. We support children learning how to be fully themselves. We support families learning how to provide the support, love and education their children need. We support our staff learning diverse methodologies, and experimenting in the classroom and in the community, in an effort to get the best possible result with each child. We never want to assume we have the answers. We want to be in the practice of learning in every moment.

Collaboration: We believe in the power of groups to find solutions individuals cannot. We are committed to investing the time and resources necessary to work with our community partners and our kids’ families to ensure that every child has access to the tools they need to thrive.

Persistence: We believe that there is hope for every child and for every family. We are committed to continuously searching for solutions to the most stubborn challenges, to empower families.
