Child Development Consortium of Los Angeles
Child Development Consortium of Los Angeles (CDCLA), is a private, non-profit agency founded in 1978 which operates a total of 6 Child Development Centers in Los Angeles. We provide a safe, emotionally nurturing and intellectually stimulating environment for young children, while also responding to the needs of families. Each child’s developmental level is evaluated and a plan is designed to help each child grow and learn.
Tiny DOTS Early Childhood Education Center uses a HighScope Curriculum:
HighScope's educational approach emphasizes active participatory learning. Active learning means students have direct, hands-on experiences with people, objects, events, and ideas. Children interests and choices are at the heart of HighScope programs. They construct their own knowledge through interactions with the world and the people around them. Children take the first step in the learning process by making choices and following through on their plans and decisions. Teachers, caregivers, and parents offer physical, emotional, and intellectual support. In active learning settings, adults expand children thinking with diverse materials and nurturing interactions.
Tiny DOTS Early Childhood Education Center is NAEYC accredited school:
