MAS Family Day Care was formed in response to the growing need of family day care services to help meet the early learning needs of children. It founders; Gemeh and Masoneh have always had the passion to help children since they were in their youth growing up on a refugee camp in Guinea, West Africa. They say even though growing up as kids they did not have access to quality early childhood learning, they are pleased to help other children to have access to quality early childhood learning.
We believe in children as future leaders and we believe that all children should be given the best possible start in life. We believe in parents as “primary” caregivers to their child and family day care as the best start for every child’s early learning. And we believe that parents have special responsibilities for their child education and guidance. We believe in building the present and the future for children.
We believe in “play” as an indispensable part of early childhood development. Early childhood development research shows that children learn primarily through play. Play offers the freedom for children to try out new ideas, develop new relationships and social skills and expand their horizon of thinking.
We believe in deep collaboration and networking which allow us to try out new ideas in a way that makes us different from other family day care services. Frankly, we do not compromise with anything less than “excellence” in our service delivery with families, children, educators, and the community, and we have the sincerity to admit when we’re in the wrong and the audacity to change.
Our relationship with children, families and educators is underpinned by fairness, respect, inclusion and diversity and can be seen as reliable, authentic, courteous, safe, non-intrusive, confidential (subject to limits), trustworthy and purposeful.
