General School Mission

Our program addresses and implements the developmental needs of all preschool children. We provide meaningful activities to promote and enhance each child's cognitive, language, and social, emotional, physical, and creative development. The schedule is designed to expand the child's opportunities to create, explore, and learn problem-solving as well as interpersonal skills through age-appropriate self and teacher directed activities. We embrace diversity, provide positive role models, and encourage parent participation. We welcome the sharing of family cultural backgrounds and celebrations. The individual needs and positive self-image of all children is paramount. Families are the primary providers. We believe the community, teachers, and parents, working together, create the supportive and nurturing atmosphere. This allows children to blossom and reach their full potential.
