Day in the Life

General School Mission

We want each parent to feel their children are getting the best care possible. We believe in a family environment. Our job is to love, hug, and keep each child safe, along with teaching them about the world around them. Children learn by repetition, hands on, and role playing. It is important that children have trained and qualified teachers in which they can look up to and learn from. Our staff is trained to give special care to each child and will not discriminate against any child.
