Staff Manual

The learning center administration wishes to welcome all staff members to work with us in achieving our main goal and mission statement. We believe that the staff and their contribution are invaluable to the success of the organization. The center is committed to delivering a conducive working environment that handles all employees with respect, dignity, and courtesy. The following staff manual is aimed at providing guidelines for all staff members, including responsibilities and behaviors.

Mission Statement
The mission statement of the new learning center is to provide exceptional child care and child education in a compassionate, engaging, and safe environment. The center also focuses on helping children develop creatively, physically, emotionally, mentally, and socially. We also focus on working collaboratively and cooperatively with our community.

Our philosophy is based on the concept of children as individuals with their exceptional and special outlook of the world. Children also yearn for more knowledge through exploration and discovery. Thus, we aim to develop a playful, engaging, and comfortable environment as the facilitators and observers to enhance their experiences. The following are our main philosophies:

• Children have a right to air their views/opinions and the right to feel good or develop a strong self-esteem (ECFS3004 Unit 1, n.d.).
• Children develop from their experiences and understanding; thus, it is important to provide comprehensive support not only in class but at home and in the community....
