General School Mission

At Zoo Crew Learning Center it is our philosophy that the first impressions of a child's life are the most important. We work hard to provide a loving nurturing and life building foundation that gives each child the life skills that they will need in order to live up to the expectations and challenges of the world. We believe that each child is born with their own unique set of skills and gifts and that it is our responsibility as caregivers and educators to discover these and encourage them on a daily basis.
