STATEMENT OF PHILOSOPHY
It is the philosophy of the Luke Air force Base Youth Programs to provide developmentally appropriate programs of the highest quality that adheres to all regulations and standards accepted by the Air Force. We respect each child as a unique individual and recognize the differences in the children’s rate of physical, social, emotional and cognitive development.
We believe that the parents are the first and primary educators of their child, and we aim to build a bridge between home, school and our programs in order to create the best possible quality programming for their child. Parents are highly encouraged to participate in our programs.
The programs provided by the School Age Care Program are based on the belief that each child should be given the opportunity to develop his or her maximum potential through varied experiences with nurturing support. A variety of activities are planned to help each child learn and develop in a stimulating anti-bias environment. The environment is extended beyond the program to include the community, through various guest speakers, and field trips.
We encourage independence and respect for others while working to promote each child’s positive self-image through successful experiences.
