  • Creating a culture promoting children’s cognitive, social, emotional and physical growth.
  • Providing a stimulating environment with positive, nurturing care and a well developed curriculum.
  • Providing small class sizes for each child to maximize potential within a robust, forward-thinking academic program.
  • Introducing a variety of experiences and activities designed to encourage children to learn about themselves, their friends, and their surroundings.
  • Balancing small and large group experiences, quiet times and active play, as well as indoor and outdoor activities
  • Developing lifelong habits to promote good nutrition and healthy living – reflected in the mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks consisting of two of the following: fresh fruit, canned fruit, applesauce, vegetables, cheese, crackers, etc.
