Learning by playing with various toys that are challenging and requires motor skills and thought -which helps the child adapt to other children through sharing and caring and at the same time-enjoy each day through play.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"I provide a clean and safe, quality Daycare for your child. I mainly share social skills to support a fun atmosphere while promoting team-building activities. However, because of a changing society, it is important to stress compassion for your children, to show them why school and learning is crucial to there future. My learning technique helps them feel confident so when they go off to school-after daycare they make new friends, but most importantly enjoy learning.
