General School Mission

"A Child's World Learning Center's Mission
We provide a safe, nurturing environment with a quality developmental program that meets the needs of the whole child as an individual so that she or he becomes a life-long learner.
A Child's World Learning Center's Philosophy
We believe:
the first five years in a child's life are the most critical in determining how a child develops as a person.
the learning of important skills can be achieved through independent play and teacher-directed activities.
in teaching children three simple, but important concepts: be safe, be neat, and be kind.
children flourish in an environment that is positive, nurturing, fun, and encourages them to grow and learn in their own unique ways.
