Our over-riding objective is to provide students with the fine education in a positive, loving, learning environment.
Our constant challenge is to provide for optimal growth and development of children by:
- Helping them develop spiritually, socially, physically, intellectually and emotionally.
- Providing positive age-appropriate individual and group experiences.
- Having many opportunities to learn through exploration, imitation, repetition and participation.
We believe that children learn through “hands on” experiences. Activities are designed to develop competence, independence and self-esteem. We provide an environment that guides and supports children’s natural inclination to challenge themselves, to be creative, and to grow in understanding the world around them.
