Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"At Skribbles Learning Center, we believe that children learn through playing. Playing is a tough job, but somebody has to do it. Through play, your child will have the opportunity to learn and explore with the many offered materials and equipment. Each child will develop at their own pace and will have the freedom to express their independence. We believe that it is the process of learning that is important and not the final product.

Each child will be treated as an individual for the special person that they are.

While your children are in our care, we promise to love, nurture and support their development. We will encourage each child to be the best that he/she can be and we will enhance their social, emotional, physical and cognitive development.

Our mission is to provide families with the high quality care that is needed, along with offering the children a happy, safe and fun learning environment.
