Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Help children grow up in a safe and nurturing environment, and at the same time assist them to become self reliant and independent.
Use developmentally appropriate programs to satisfy each child's physical, emotional and intellectual needs.
Help children explore their environment through play.
Offer children a home away from home and help them to adapt both socially and intellectually in a diverse environment.

OUR MISSION is to provide the best care and learning experience for our children to help them expand their curiosity and creativity in a warm, secured and nurturing environment.

OUR VISION is to be the "Premier Preschool and Child Care Center" in the Bay Area. We will work with parents to:

Provide outstanding care and learning programs to develop and satisfy each child's social, emotional, physical and intellectual needs, and prepare the child for elementary school
Offer every child the attention that exceeds the parents' expectations
Be a respected and active member of the child care community
Become a learning organization that learns and changes fast "
