Our Philosophy

We believe that children learn best when they are encouraged and supported by parents and teachers through child initiated and age appropriate activities.

We will provide a safe, supportive and loving environment that will promote learning and allow children to achieve their fullest potential.

Our staff will promote self-development, cultural identity and respect for others.

Parents are encouraged to participate in learning activities both at school and at home.

 

Our Programs

The most important growth and development in the brain happens by the age of five. Children who participate in high-quality early childhood education programs develop better language skills, score higher in school-readiness tests and have better social skills and fewer behavioral problems once they enter school.
