From the Director:

We believe kids learn best while they are playing. Therefore, most of our learning takes place in learning-based centers. We provide a loving atmosphere that promotes learning throughout the daily activities.

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

All of our teachers and teacher aides are CPR and First Aid certified. We also complete 24 hours of continuing education each year. We try to keep our class sizes small and have teacher aides for every two rooms to ensure that each child has individualized learning.
