Our Philosophy

We believe that a high quality early childhood education program provides a safe and nurturing environment which in turn promotes the physical, social-emotional, cognitive, and creative development of young children. Every child enrolled in our program will be treated as a unique individual with kindness, love, and respect. We recognize and affirm each child's need to grow and develop at his/her own pace. We will care for your child with respect and support for their primary language and culture.

Program Goals

Our primary goal is to provide a high quality early childhood educational program for the children enrolled in preschool program. We meet this goal through the implementation of a well rounded, comprehensive, child-centered curriculum, prepared and implemented by trained and caring teachers in a safe and nurturing environment.

For the children, our goal is to provide a play-oriented curriculum based on an integrated philosophy where respect for the child, positive guidance, and the development of self-esteem are important values. Early educational activities are planned based on the emerging skills of each child.

For the parents, our goal is to establish a partnership that is supportive of the whole family. We offer opportunities for presentations, trainings, parent-teacher conferences, and by encouraging parents to participate in the preschool program in ways that enhance and support the goal of the program.
