Our Philosophy

Child playing with coinsWe feel that children learn best through play. The opportunity to participate in creative play is often limited to the early years and our objective is to provide as many of these experiences as possible.

We are committed to enhancing the intellectual, emotional and social growth of each child in a secure and nurturing atmosphere. Our classroom environments and daily programs are designed to be stimulating, challenging and supportive of each child's needs, capabilities, and interests.
