General School Mission

"Provide an environment where children thrive…

Creativity abounds and
Hands-on early childhood learning experiences incorporate
Laughter and
Knowledge in a safe and inspirational preschool setting.

Educate young minds and facilitate the enjoyment of learning. Support the growth of the whole child across emotional, social, physical, and cognitive domains to ensure the development of strong, confident, life-long learners.

Incorporate (1) core curriculum goals based on early childhood learning standards and models and (2) the arts within a loving, stimulating environment. Establish and adapt best practices to provide a well-rounded, structured education enhanced with play and creativity. Structure daily activities to provide stability and security.
