In a carefully planned yet creative environment, children are given opportunities to acquire knowledge as they build upon emerging interests and develop friendships.
Cognitive, social and physical development are fostered through relationships, the creative arts, foundational content areas, basic skills mastery, values training and motor skills acquisition.
