Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our philosophy is to provide a safe, healthy, and nurturing learning environment for children in our care. We are here to support you in any way we can to promote growth in your child! It is our desire that the transition from home to school is a happy and rewarding one for the entire family. We encourage mutual communication between our staff and the parents/guardians and believe it is an essential element for your child's success in our program. We invite you to be involved with the Parent Advisory Committee, school programs, volunteer on special events (or any day), and join in the fun at our school."
