Our mission is to provide Early Childhood Education and childcare services that prepare your child for the future.
We use an interactive approach that allows teachers to work with the children in small groups, large groups, and one-on-one.
Our curriculum is based on the philosophy that young children learn through active exploration in an environment which is rich in materials and opportunities to play, socialize, converse, work, and negotiate with others.The classrooms are planned to encourage curiosity, exploration, and problem solving in an atmosphere of warmth, affection and respect for each child.
Teachers plan experiences based on children's interests and appropriate educational concepts. Children may work individually or collaboratively, and may choose whether or not to participate in a project.
All interrelated aspects of the child's growth and development are considered ' intellectual, social, emotional, physical, and creative.
