General School Mission

"At Mini-Skool we understand that choosing the right setting for your child is both an important and exciting decision for parents. We believe children learn and develop best in a happy, safe, nurturing, creative and stimulating environment. We provide the very best in early childhood education from caring and highly trained teachers to specially designed, inviting age-appropriate classrooms.
At the family of Mini-Skool Early Learning Centers, your child is valued and will experience a loving and enriching atmosphere. Children here will learn to respect and acknowledge differences among people's abilities and talents, and to value each person for his or her strengths. Your child will enjoy an organized program with a regular routine which includes both indoor and outdoor activities. Our teachers make it a priority to know each child well and to create an intellectually engaging environment designed to promote each child's learning and development. At Mini-Skool our goal is to create a balance of Laughter, Love and Learning for every child. "
