SHALL provide all children with experiences that will enhance their physical, cognitive, social and emotional development; and

SHALL appreciate and provide for the uniqueness and potential of each child; and

SHALL acknowledge that families are of primary importance in the child's development and constantly strive for exceptional cooperation between the home and our program professionals; and
