We believe that parents are their children's first and most important teachers. Our role is to assist parents in developing a child's social, emotional, intellectual, and physical growth.
We also believe that from birth to the age of five is the most critical time in a child's life. At no other period will we see such growth. We believe that providing a stimulating environment and encouraging curiosity will increase each child's potential for learning.
We believe a child masters learning through the exploration of the environment; therefore, parents will observe lots of purposeful play during the day.
