Child Development Center
Child Development Center at Naval Station Newport is led by qualified professionals in Early Childhood Education whose major goal is to promote your child’s growth and development in a nurturing environment through meaningful learning experiences. The curriculum is developmentally appropriate, keeping in mind the specific needs of each individual child. Activities are planned; however, these plans are flexible depending on the daily interests and needs of the children. Children are invited and encouraged to participate in individual and group activities designed to promote social, emotional, intellectual (cognitive), and physical development.
Caregivers administer the curriculum and guide the children’s behavior.
The ratio of staff to children is always sufficient to maintain constant supervision and implement a developmentally appropriate program. Some examples of skills we foster are:
Health and safety
Self expression and creativity
Large and small motor skills
