Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

" At Ballestrini's Child Care Centers, our goal is to provide each child with the highest level of quality care in a group setting. We believe that as children grow, they need a positive self-image, supportive role-models, and both a structured and free learning environment to effectively guide them through their development.
The teaching staff, at Ballestrini's, work to develop well-rounded children by presenting a positive first school experience. This is achieved with a developmentally appropriate curriculum based in the areas of math, reading-readiness, science, social studies, music, creative arts, free-play and health. Our activities, at Ballestrini's Child Care Centers, encourage learning and growth in a manner that is appealing and exciting for children.
