Our Philosophy

Our program is committed to the belief that children build confidence, joy, and independence through respect, love, and a strong sense of self. We focus on development by:

  • Providing hands on experiences through arts & crafts activities, play dough, music activities, science and cooking, structured playground individual and team exercises, and open play.
  • Presenting problem-solving techniques that hone children’s critical thinking skills to build a better self-concept within a positive atmosphere.


Our Mission

To create an environment of learning for both parents and children that strengthens the relationship between each other, their neighbors, and their community.
