Can you see yourself here?
Googols of Learning is strongly committed to creating an anti-bias community. Through a developmentally- and age-appropriate lens, we work with children to increase awareness of biases and to normalize conversations about issues of identity, diversity, fairness, and acceptance. We continuously work to equip children with the foundational skills to recognize unfairness and to stand up for others as well as for themselves.
We promote healthy lifestyles and provide a setting where there is acceptance, respect, caring, and encouragement. In the warmth of this atmosphere, we hope to help the child develop a positive attitude toward learning and responsibility, as well as, self-discipline, self-confidence, and self-esteem. We assist in cultivating competent problem-solvers and their social skills in relating with each other and adults. We show respect for the child and the child's family always and will cooperate with and reinforce the educational efforts at home. We value ongoing education in our teaching staff. We support child advocacy, engage with early childhood community leaders, and look to interact with the community at-large in whatever ways possible.
While Googols of Learning was last rated as a 4-Star Kansas Quality Rating Improvement (KQRIS) school, our goal is to reach accreditation through the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). In all we do, we strive to be a standard of excellence in the local early childhood community.
