"Our philosophy is that children be provided with a program that is:
Positive in its introduction to teachers, classroom routine, group play and more organized learning.
Developmentally appropriate with learning experiences to enhance their ability to make decisions and solve problems.
Attentive to the social, emotional, cognitive, intellectual and physical need of each child.
The "I AM!" comes through the development of the child's self-esteem--knowing that he is needed, wanted, liked, LOVED-at all times, in all things, BEING ACCEPTED AS IS. When the child feels good about himself(self esteem), he can approach each new experience with confidence and be successful. Each new success strengthens the "I CAN!" which, in turn reinforces the "I AM!".
