welcome to Antigo Child Care Center!
mission statement and philosophy
Antigo Child Care Center will provide an engaging and nurturing environment where children are encouraged to explore, play, grow and learn. The staff at Antigo Child Care Center (ACCC) will be educated, certified, and well-trained to offer love, learning opportunities, and care for the children of our community. We will provide parents with assurance of quality supervision and an enriching curriculum to meet each child’s individual learning potential.
Antigo Child Care Center supports a primarily play-based or child-centered learning style where children are encouraged to be curious, explore and learn based on their age and own current interests through specifically focused play designed by ACCC staff. This active style of learning also facilitates and encourages the growth of social skills along the way. Parts of the day may include developmentally appropriate academic-based programming for preschool children with teacher led instruction and activities. ACCC fully supports the idea that children develop at different rates, that each child is a unique individual whose needs should be met at whatever stage they’re at, and acknowledges that not all children develop at the same rate.
