  • Garrett-Williamson Foundation provides quality educational and recreational programs for the benefit of financially challenged children, and to keep the property in a farm like environment to fulfill the wishes set forth in the will of Elizabeth W. Garrett.
  • We believe that each child has the right to develop to his or her fullest potential, not only intellectually, but socially, emotionally and physically as well.
  • At Garrett's Way we strive to create an atmosphere that allows the total child to develop.
  • Our theory is that in order for a child to learn, he or she must be progressively challenged.
  • We design our activities with this in mind, starting with simple challenges and than moving to those that are more complex.
  • Our activities are geared toward the individual needs, abilities and interests of each child so as to promote a positive outlook on the learning process.
  • It is important that the parents and the Center form a team to aid in the development of each child in our care.
  • An open-door policy which encourages parents to participate in their child's daily activities and development will build the partnership with parents and staff.
