From the Director:
We believe in creating a warm, nurturing environment where children feel secure and can gain confidence in their own abilities. We believe that by sharing aspects of their native culture through music, dance, food, language and dress, children expand their knowledge and understanding of the world. We welcome children who speak little or no English at home and believe that English speaking children benefit as they observe and help their peers learn English. We believe in learning through play. Play is the central activity in the life of a child, and through our structured, teacher led play-based activities, children learn naturally how to think, how to solve problems, and how to achieve goals. How to express their ideas and their emotions, how to cooperate, collaborate and respect each other, how to be a friend. While having fun they are developing the social, emotional, physical and cognitive foundations they need to succeed â€” not just in their next school, but throughout their lives.
