Little LYNC Childcare & Family Center was established in 2011 in the Potrero Hill neighborhood of San Francisco. We believe that every child possesses unique qualities, which makes them individual learners. At Little LYNC we recognize each child’s developmental needs and foster his or her own growth and independence. Our center is a nurturing, creative environment where they can learn and explore.
Our curriculum is play-based, strongly influenced by the Reggio-Emilia approach. According to this philosophy children learn by investigating their environment, hands on experiences encourage critical thinking skills and peer cooperation. It is the children’s interests that determine the curriculum, the teachers act as their facilitators.
Role of Teacher
Our teachers are considered co-learners and collaborators with children, not just the instructors. Teachers encourage learning by planning activities and lessons based on the children’s interests, asking questions to further understanding, and actively engaging in the activities alongside the children. Teachers are facilitators there to observe, assist, and guide the children in their hands-on experiences.
