Our Vision

Our vision for ourselves is to grow and flourish. Together, we have a chance to mutually form the best organization possible; to create the best environment for the children in our care; to create the best environment for their parents and to create the best working environment for ourselves. In other words, create an environment where all flourish. The word "flourish" brings up associations of vibrancy, aliveness, and positive growth. The dictionary defines flourish "to grow luxuriantly" or to "reach a height of development or influence". "Flourish" seems to capture the essence of what we can imagine as the ideal organization. If we are "growing luxuriantly" or flourishing as an organization we might expect that:

  • Every teacher working in FSU Childcare & Early Learning Programs genuinely loves the children in their care.
  • Every teacher working in FSU Childcare & Early Learning Programs has a passion for teaching young children.
  • Every teacher working in FSU Childcare & Early Learning Programs is a close observer of the children in their care such that it guides, in an intentional way, learning experiences.
  • Every teacher working in FSU Childcare & Early Learning Programs, with intentionality, promotes, supports, encourages each child's unique development in all areas including physical development, intellectual development, social development, and emotional development.
  • Every staff member is friendly and warm to all.
  • Every center is warm, inviting, comfortable, nurturing, and safe.
  • Every center feels like "home".
  • Every center provides absolutely top–tier, early learning experiences.

Starting each thought or description with "Every" likely brings a pause because it conveys the idea of 100% which is such a rare occasion but remember we are thinking of the ideal we can reach for.

To guide our work the Staff & Teacher Handbook provides the guidelines and procedures for day to day operation.
