Program Philosophy

Quality childcare reflects an interest in the whole child, social, emotional, physical, and cognitive.

Children learn in different ways, each with his/her own strengths in all eight areas of intelligence.

Learning is an exciting process with children learning every moment through play and active exploration of their environment.

A child-centered curriculum is built upon observing and understanding each child's individual skill and interest level.
