Individual/Small Group Learning
The Bakersfield Adult School Children’s Center operates with a clear mission: to promote meaningful learning in a positive and safe environment that honors the uniqueness of every child. Rooted in our philosophy is a developmentally based approach to early care and education. We prioritize assessing each child's individual needs and ardently work towards nurturing their independence, enhancing their social skills, sparking their creativity, and ensuring their readiness for school. Beyond the child's individual growth, we also acknowledge and celebrate the distinctiveness of each family and their cultural background, understanding that it plays a pivotal role in the child's development.
