General School Mission

"Our goal is to cooperate and work with families to ensure that children are taught in ways that are emotionally safe, educationally and developmentally sound, and with their present and future kept in mind.
"Each child is worthy of love, acceptance, and the support that helps to build a good self-image."
Children's Center affirms that high quality programs for children support the child, the family, and society as a whole.
