take an active part in their environment; that learning occurs through doing
and experimenting. It is our role to see young lives shaped into useful and
full functioning individuals
The credentialed and experienced staff members strive to meet the needs of
each child as an individual, and to provide a safe environment where children
are free to make choices at their own particular level of social, mental,
spiritual, emotional, and physical development. We will provide a quality
educational program where children will develop a positive self-image.Great
