Ka Hana Pono – General Program Information
Welcome to Ka Hana Pono Daycare!!
We are a family owned and operated child daycare center rooted inthe belief that the primary needs of all children are love, respect and a great deal of attention.
As parents ourselves, we understand that quality childcare is a concern that cuts to the core of the quality of life for every parentand child. We are committed to providing a safe, inspiring, andenriched environment for your child where his/her needs are met and social, intellectual, emotional, physical, ecological & creative awareness can grow and flourish.
As a normal part of ancient Hawaiian culture, it was instilled inchildren to respect and appreciate all things because all things are interconnected. One way of doing this was through Ka Hana Pono, the everyday practice of living in harmony with all life – Self, Others& Nature.
Ka Hana Pono Daycare recognizes each child as an individual and we support each child in his/her unique developmental needs. At the same time, as part of a culturally diverse world in which mutualrespect and understanding (aloha) are essential – children at Ka Hana Pono Daycare are also encouraged to value teamwork,interdependence, and group harmony.
Ka Hana Pono Daycare’s aim is to harmonize intellectual, emotionaland instinctual reactions with the Spirit of Aloha by incorporatingvalue lessons into our daily experiences. The value lessons provide the motive for staying in pono (harmony) with all life and nature –and this is important as values/beliefs influence behavior/actions.
At Ka Hana Pono Daycare, values are learned through our interactions with each child, the way that we encourage them tointeract with each other, & by sharing stories, songs and games.
