Our Philosophy & Purpose
Our philosophy is founded on a deep respect for children and their unlimited potential. We use an active, hands-on process and treat each child as a unique individual. Our classrooms are carefully prepared to encourage children to interact with materials that are appropriate for their development age. Teachers act as guides assisting the process of self motivated discovery. Children are provided with the opportunity of mixed age grouping during circle time and group activities which create a social setting similar to an extended family. Children benefit academically and socially from this experience, including learning many ground rules for life. We ensure that the safety of the children and employees are paramount along with good health and hygiene practices. We have systems in place to foster these objectives. We encourage parent participation and involvement to be on the winning team.
