Our Commitment to Quality
The State of Oregon created the Spark program and Quality Rating System to recognize and reward child care providers who are committed to raising the quality and consistency of child care and early learning programs across the state. Creative Minds Learning Centers, Broadway supports this mission and has taken the steps necessary to receive the Commitment to Quality (C2Q) designation. Our preschool works continuously to go above and beyond state standards, so that we may provide the best possible preschool environment and early educational experiences for the children in our care.
Love and Logic
Part of the role of any preschool program is to help young children develop appropriate social skills and behaviors. At Creative Minds, we use the Love and Logic philosophy and methods for behavioral management and discipline. It’s important for preschool children to learn to cooperate with teachers and peers, to learn to solve conflict with others through negotiations, and to learn to respect and care for others.
We feel that it’s best to guide behavior by stating our expectations clearly and giving the reasons for our expectations or rules. Our goal is for each child to assume responsibility for his or her behavior, to learn that certain behaviors affect others, and to help each child develop age-appropriate self-management skills.
