Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

A program is only as exceptional as it’s staff. All of our teachers have backgrounds in early childhood education, and continue to take classes to further develop their knowledge about young children. In addition, all staff members are fully certified in both First Aid and CPR. Because our center offers medical insurance, paid vacation, sick leave, retirement, and continuing education classes, we have a dedicated group of professionals, committed to high quality early childhood education.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Early childhood is a time of rapid growth and development; a time when children must be free to discover, explore, experience, and gain mastery of skills and knowledge in a safe, predictable and supportive environment. Our program allows children to mature at their own rate relative to their unique abilities and interests by participating in a variety of developmentally appropriate indoor and outdoor, active and quiet, teacher-directed and child-initiated activities.
