Our Philosophy

Our program is designed to meet the social, emotional, physical, intellectual and creative needs of each child.  We recognize that there is a wide range of development, interests and abilities among all children.  We provide experiences reflecting and fulfilling these different needs while respecting the child’s right to be a child.  We view ourselves as an extension of the family to make this a positive experience for everyone.
