Delaware Early Learning Foundations

All children are learners.
Children learn through play.
Every child is unique and is accepted for his/her differences in development, culture, home environment, and learning style.
Parents/families are the child’s first teachers—they play a key role in preparing children for success in school through being involved in their child’s education from birth.
Quality early learning experiences are essential to prepare a child for success in school.
The learning opportunities provided need to be developmentally appropriate for all children.
A developmentally appropriate learning environment supports learning and development.
It takes partnerships among families, early care and education professionals, schools, health care providers, and other community resources to promote children’s development and school success.
