Epworth’s child care philosophy and practice is based upon the work of an international research team facilitated by the Residential Child Care Project at Cornell University. C.A.R.E., an acronym for Children and Residential Experience, is based upon key principles that create conditions for positive change in the lives of children and families. These principles were derived from recent research and best practices gleaned from the field’s most highly respected practitioners. The application of this model of child care allows Epworth to create an environment that is understanding, sensitive, and respectful of the struggles of children and families in today’s world. This approach promotes healing and positive change, rather than attempting to temporarily control behavior.
