Growing Minds, Artwork by MatisseWe believe that every child brings something unique to the world. The role of an educator is to help children to develop their potential by believing in them as capable individuals. The goal is to encourage children to learn and grow by providing a foundation of developmentally appropriate experiences where all children can succeed in a safe and nurturing environment. Children learn best through meaningful play. Our play-based, child centered program reflects the integration of physical, cognitive, social, emotional, language and self- help areas for the development of the whole child. Meaningful play encourages curiosity, discovery and problem solving which allows individual growth and development of a positive self-image. Recognizing that parents are the child's first teachers and that children learn best when parents are involved in their educational program. The primary bridge between home and school/childcare setting is the involvement of family and community.
