"Our school is run like a large loving family
We believe that a child care center is a place where children LIVE. After all, they spend a lot of time there. Their best friends are there. Our center in the Alta Heights east side of the city of Napa is our one and only location. We are there and parents and children can see us and talk to us. We don't have to check with the "corporate headquarters" to make a decision. We ARE the corporate headquarters. We think childhood is a fun time and we want to have fun as we play and learn about life.
A child-centered experience
Mary's successful philosophy is based on the theories of Piaget and Montessori. The curriculum is child directed. "This teaches the children by getting them to be actively involved in projects and learning offered at our center. The children are like little scientists. When they really want to understand something, they will be much more receptive to learning."
