  • The toddler program provides an environment that focuses on a child's need to develop a sense of trust and emotional security while making discoveries about themselves, their abilities, and the world around them.
  • Pre-School and Pre-K children are exposed to a rich environment that enhances their self-worth and stimulates their natural curiosity. The children receive the special attention necessary to enourage good learning behaviors and a positive learning experience.
