General School Mission

"Our philosophy is to provide a high quality, secure, warm, caring,and sanitary environment which promotes the emotional, social, intellectual, and physical growth of your child. Our two main goals are to develop the character and socialization skills of your child. We are committed to supporting the development of children's innate curiosity and love of learning. We believe each child is a little seed in need of nourishment in a well-prepared environment. Our staff is committed to planting the seeds of learning for a better future. We are proud to be an American Montessori Society Affiliated School."
