Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Mi Casa works to ensure a positive experience for every child. Our commitment to the children we care for will help shape the positive self-image that takes them into school, home, and the community. By providing a supportive environment and a safe, nurturing place in which to learn and play, we build the foundation for success! Mi Casa’s primary objectives are to meet the needs of all children while giving them love, guidance and support in an inviting, creative atmosphere as we realize that each child possesses their own special gifts and talents. The classroom design encourages individualism and growth while we provide a consistent approach to learning. We believe in providing a warm, secure, and positive atmosphere for all children, while exercising their brains’ fullest and maximum potential. Positive learning experiences will foster independence and proper intellectual growth. At Mi Casa, we set our goals high, work to bring out the best in all our children, and we take pride in ensuring their safety and guarding their well being."
