Our Mission Statement
Our program is based on several ideals. The first is that all children are different. We design our program to encourage each child to develop at their own rate, focusing on social, emotional, physical, intellectual, and language development. We help your child to discover his or her gifts as well as develop a positive self-esteem.
The best way for a child to learn is to provide hands-on experiences that are fun! Children learn through play, and, when a structured curriculum is woven into this play, the child will learn without even realizing it!
A child-centered environment that is clean and safe is essential for a child’s growth and comfort. We design our center and activities around the children and offer them many activities that are age and developmentally appropriate.
Parents are an extremely important part of our center. We are dedicated to developing and maintaining a positive and open relationship with all of our parents! Children need to see a strong relationship between their caregivers and parents in order to feel comfortable in their new environment, just as parents need to have peace of mind about sending their child to this environment.
Our goal is to provide the best care for both our children and our parents! We will encourage each child to learn new skills, but will not force him or her beyond his/her capabilities. We also want our parents to feel that they have chosen a learning center that will provide a safe, comfortable and stable environment for their child. We welcome any information, ideas, or suggestions that you may have, and we will always maintain an open door policy. We understand the difficulties involved with choosing the right center for your family’s needs.
Our program maintains a Certificate of Accreditation to certify our program meets the standards for quality childhood programs and to recognize the dedication to maintaining educational excellence in the early learning years.
