Our Mission
As a Child Development Program serving our youngest learners 0-5, we are committed to providing quality comprehensive services to all students enrolled in our programs. We strive to make learning fun and rewarding and ensure that student’s educational and basic needs are met. We are a school readiness program that supports student’s growth and development through hands-on developmental appropriate activities. Students develop language, social and emotional, and cognitive skills. We work in collaboration with families as a team to support all students’ potential and that of our families. Our students with specials needs are included throughout the curriculum as well as our English language learners. Our program supports all learning capacities and empowers families to become their child’s advocate and alongside the program ensure student success now and in the future. Together we ensure all our students become lifelong learners. As a program, we serve all students including those with mild to severe disabilities and special need.

Program Philosophy
Our philosophy is that all students have the ability and potential to learn if given the opportunity. We are committed to providing a comprehensive and developmentally appropriate curriculum that fosters independent learning in a safe and healthy environment conducive to learning.
