From the Director:

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

For toddlers, we have daily communications on their activity but for preschoolers, typical communication is via parent-teacher conference or as may be deemed necessary.

Parents are always welcome for a quiet observation.

Your child is our pride. We are happy to do whatever may be necessary to make your child feel at home.
