General School Mission

We believe that childcare should promote the emotional, social, physical and cognitive growth of each child. Each child should be viewed as unique and encouraged to reach their full potential through developmentally appropriate experiences. We are committed to enhancing each child's understanding of their world so they can approach new concepts, materials and situations with confidence and enthusiasm.
