General School Mission

"The Center's mission is to provide the best developmental child care to the children of our community and to that end we have articulated these standards of professional practice for all our children.
We will support children in our setting so they can feel good about themselves, have self worth and grow and try new experiences.
We will respect ourselves, our children and our community.
We will listen to and acknowledge their thoughts and feelings.
We will encourage and recognize their efforts.
We will nurture them with care.
We will applaud their growth.
And we will treasure and protect their innocence.

A Typical Day

"The students are exposed to weekly educational themes through a variety of venues. These include circle time, reading and acting, arts and crafts, cooking, science, snack time and free play. This exposure to both structured and unstructured activities is met with curiosity and excitement. Through this curriculum, fine and gross motor skills improve, educational knowledge is enhanced and social skills continue to progress."
