OUR MISSION:

Our mission is to create a positive classroom environment where children feel safe, enjoy school and are part of an extended support system which also includes their families.

EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY

We believe that a solid foundation during the early years is crucial for educational success as children enter formal schooling. Our curriculum offers structured activities that help each child grow and develop cognitively, socially, emotionally, physically and spiritually. By having a positive first experience with school, children will develop a love for learning as well as a better understanding of how to interact with peers and follow classroom routines.
