General School Mission

"A high quality early childhood program provides a safe and nurturing environment while promoting the physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development of young children. In accredited programs, you will see: frequent, positive, warm interactions among adults and children; planned learning activities appropriate to children's age and development, such as block building, painting, reading stories, dress-up, and active outdoor play; specially trained teachers; enough adults to respond to individual children; many varied age-appropriate materials; a healthy and safe environment for children; nutritious meals and/or snacks; regular communication with parents who are welcome visitors at all times; effective administration; and ongoing, systematic evaluation.
