Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Children are like tender seeds. They need continuous, loving care to grow and blossom. We strive to provide a warm, cozy environment in which children feel happy and secure while engaged in a variety of stimulating age-appropriate learning activities. We give special attention to each child’s needs and interests as well as social, emotional, and intellectual development."
