General School Mission

Each child is recognized as an individual with her/his own interests, experiences, abilities and needs.

Our curriculum strives to provide each child with opportunities for optimal growth cognitively, emotionally, socially, physically and spiritually with sensitivity to the understanding that children grow and develop at their own unique pace.

The purpose of our program is:

1. To provide quality child care for the community
2. To help families meet their child care needs with a 2, 3, or 5-day program.
3. To Support the growth of the whole child.
