Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our Mission is to provide quality childcare in a safe, nurturing, respectful, family environment with developmentally appropriate practices in a home-like setting. We are an extension of each family providing children a home away from home.

"We believe that children learn best through discovery and have a natural curiosity and eagerness for learning. Our program is based on the philosophy that children learn best when given the opportunity to experience a variety of organized hands-on activities. By taking a multi-sensory approach to learning, we provide developmentally appropriate experiences that meet the individual needs of each child at their own pace."
