Our Philosophy & Goals

We believe
all children are capable of learning and are creative, independent, critical thinkers.
in educating the whole child: socially, emotionally, physically and cognitively by providing an atmosphere where the creativity, uniqueness, and self-esteem of each child are nurtured.
preschool is a fun, happy place to be!
Our goals are to provide…
a community where each child is understood, loved, and accepted leading to a positive self-concept.
activities through which each child learns to control emotions, leading to self-discipline.
opportunities where children become excited about learning and are successful learners.
a place that opens new horizons: to explore and wonder!
