General School Mission

"Our mission is to provide a quality environment for preschool children where they can explore, create, experience and learn through a variety of creative, artistic and musical activities. Our goal is to incorporate the experience and philosophy of the "Music Together" program as well as the guidelines of NAEYC in the preschool environment, using the basic premise that children learn through play, exploration and from adult models.
We appreciate and support the close ties between the child and family, and recognize that childhood is a unique and valuable stage that offers a window of powerful opportunity.
