• A child's most important need is to be loved and respected by his/her family.
• Children have their own unique individuality, which needs to be recognized and respected.
• The most critical time for learning is from birth to age six when their brain is “being wired�.
• Children love learning when they feel successful in their learning.
• Children's ability to learn can be enhanced with the proper developmental steps.
• Children have a natural desire to learn, explore and discover.
• Children's learning must be time appropriate, including stopping instruction before mentally, physically or psychologically fatigued.
• Children need good basic neurological organization in order to succeed in learning.
• Physical coordination reflects mental coordination; i.e., a well-coordinated body facilitates the ability to learn.
• By becoming knowledgeable in the neurological and developmental aspects of growth, one can recognize, understand and provide appropriate stimulation to support the child's total development.
• An effective learning environment for young children is multi-sensory and interdisciplinary, so that the learning is related to and becomes a part of life.
• Science is a natural and high interest format for introducing children to the world while fostering skill development.
• In order to generate a love of learning, the child's early learning experiences must be….

• Our desire is to be a gateway into the world and to teach each child so that he/she:
