"We believe that each child is unique and special.
We believe in focusing on the WHOLE CHILD.
We believe that a positive, loving approach is the foundation for developing high self-esteem and a rewarding learning experience.
We believe that a child's positive self worth is a combination of intellectual, physical, social, and emotional development.
We believe that experienced SPECIALISTS in early childhood development, who truly love children, are essential for an exceptional program.
We believe in stimulating, specially designed programs, which provide a balance and variety of group activities, individual attention, and creative free time.
We believe in providing the best in facilities, teaching materials, and resources; including classrooms, infant nursery, indoor play systems, and outdoor park-like fenced activity areas.
We believe in a full spectrum of concepts and activities, from learning to play cooperatively, building friendships, sharing, taking turns, understanding respect for others, large and small muscle development, creative play, exploring the arts, music, language, and more.
We believe in providing a safe, clean, caring environment. In turn, an overall feeling of confidence and comfort is experienced.
