The expectations for programs provide pedagogical direction for educators as they:

  • cultivate authentic, caring relationships and connections to create a sense of belonging among and between children, adults, and the world around them;
  • nurture children’s healthy development and support their growing sense of self;
  • provide environments and experiences to engage children in active, creative, and meaningful exploration, play, and inquiry;
  • foster communication and expression in all forms. (HDLH p.13)
