The curriculum is based on the core belief that the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life and future success. The infant/toddler, preschool, and school-age programs are staffed with teachers who are trained to understand the cognitive, physical and social development of kids.
There is a commitment to respect and nurture a child's needs to feel connected and supported in trying new things. Babies develop trust and security, preschoolers experience early literacy and learn about their environment, and school-age kids make friends, learn new skills, and receive homework assistance. There is a strong focus on building confident kids today and bright futures tomorrow.
