Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Adventure Center offers a hands on, developmentally appropriate program that builds the social, emotional, physical and intellectual development of our children through well-planned activities that encourage self-discovery.

Our activities foster language arts, reading, math, science, creativity and social/emotional

hysical development. We know that when we provide these activities at the appropriate level and in a nurturing environment, our children will take their next steps well prepared and with their natural thirst for knowledge intact.

We don’t forget about you - the parent. We provide a warm, safe, secure and loving environment for your peace of mind while away from your child.
