Our vision is to see all obstacles removed so that every child possesses the confidence and skills necessary to achieve their own vision.
To provide to all enrolled children regardless of race, religious belief, national origin, or disability, the best possible environment with which to experience clear and positive social-emotional growth, appropriate physical challenges and confident academic achievement.
Goals for Children
Our goal is to inspire children to achieve a wonderful sense of self worth and to respect and understand the part they play in humanity.
Goals for Families
Families can be very diverse and we respect those differences. Our goal is to support and encourage our families' diverse cultures through personal understandings, education, caring, and positive interaction.
Supporting positive family values encourages a loving positive environment for all family members. Children raised in a loving, engaging environment combined with quality child care by educated child care professionals creates many great "teaching moments" for children to evolve into happy, responsible, tolerant, community minded adults.
We believe teaching respect for self and others are important aspects when teaching ethics and morals and that each is a major contributor to a child's emotional well being.
We believe good self-esteem is exhibited by children who are emotionally and physically confident and that academic experiences that are engaging, fun, and supported by enthusiastic staff encourages them to continue to grow throughout their years.
We believe nurturing is a key component in a child's loving nature.
We believe if we help families, we help the community.
And finally, we believe; it is our responsibility as adults to model all of those desired behaviors.
Our Overall Commitment
We are deeply committed to providing the best possible child care experiences we can and to do so in a loving, nurturing, and engaging way. We do this by integrating the latest information regarding Early Childhood, Elementary Education, and professional educational research into our program.
