BITC is committed to building teams of teachers
who each hold Lead Teacher Certificates from the Department of Early
Education and Care. This commitment
exceeds state regulations and ensures quality of care for our BITC
children. Every teacher holds a degree in early education or a related
field. The diversity and longevity of our teaching team is a source
of BITC pride.
children learn through interaction with their environment and with
the people around them. They use their bodies, their senses, their
feelings and their minds to explore their internal and external
worlds. This exploration is most successful in a safe and predictable
environment. It is the task of early childhood teachers to use their
knowledge of the sequence and scope of normal development to provide
opportunities for discovery and invention.
teacher also models respect for individuals and for the unique contributions
each person makes to the life of the group. We believe it is important
to be non-judgmental in our work with children, respectful of their
feelings and choices, and of their efforts and skills. Our respect
is shown by providing a safe and predictable setting where children
may express themselves, and by providing a challenging and stimulating
world for them to explore.
