We believe:
  • that young children learn to the best of their ability when given a safe, healthy and nurturing environment
  • in a combination of strong teacher-child and family relationships, where all are valued
  • that there are many opportunities for learning through play experiences
  • in the importance of involved families working together to help your child
  • that activities are geared toward your child's current skills and interests.
