To instill a lifetime learning attitude, a journey that should start off on the right foot, we combine learning experiences and structured play in a fun, safe and nurturing environment - offering far more than just child care.

Our teachers genuinely care about children, and understand each child's individual developmental needs and learning styles. They take the time to help each child discover, in his or her own way, a fascinating world of play and learning.

At our center, we make children feel comfortable and confident. They want to learn and play here. Our classrooms are well-appointed with appropriate learning aids and stimulating toys. We encourage a highly productive partnership between teachers, directors and parents. We link parents to what their children are learning at school through monthly newsletter, and open parent-teacher communications.

Our program provides a safe and nurturing environment that promotes the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development of young children while responding to the needs of families. Children learn by doing. Children acquire oral language skills and knowledge about the physical and social world in which they live through playful interaction with materials and people. Teachers monitor behaviors to assess the developmental level of each child and to provide sequential instruction to accommodate their growth. Activities are designed to develop children’s self-esteem and positive feelings toward learning. The curriculum and adults’ interactions with children are responsive to individual differences.

The young children’s literature-based curriculum provides a rich environment which supports active learning experiences facilitated by the teacher.
