Early Childhood Center

Philosophy

kidphoto1

Our program offers your child a nurturing and caring environment, that inspires natural curiosity and fosters physical, intellectual, emotional, and social development. Children learn to express themselves in many ways through "Play": To think critically, solve problems creatively, and to interact positively with others. We believe children in preschool should have a wide variety of developmentally appropriate activities. The program's balance between teacher-structured and student-choice activities is comfortable and realistic for the young child.
