The Peanut Gallery consistently keeps a mixed age group of children allowing for many mentoring opportunities between the children. Children with physical and/or cognitive delays are fully integrated into the group. Activities are individually adjusted to meet each child's needs. Therapist and educators often include the entire daycare group in with their sessions with the child they are servicing, which helps teach the children cooperation, patience, and empathy for their friends.
Statement of Philosophy: Each child is individually special. They learn and grow at individual paces and have different strengths. Their strengths will be encouraged while also being encouraged to develop and improve other skills. Honing social skills and learning independence skills are an everyday priority at The Peanut Gallery.
