We recognize that every child is unique and we strive to promote the following qualities in each child:
a feeling of confidence and a positive self image
intellectual growth (pre-reading, pre-writing, and basic math and science concepts)
their curiosity, exploration, and discovery of the world around them
listening and language skills - in various structured activities; and by initiating, selecting, and organizing their own play in free time activities
good co-ordination of small and large muscles (outdoor as well as indoors)
positive peer and adult interaction in group situations
the fine art of self discipline
the ability to express their thoughts and feelings in a manner appropriate to the environment and acceptable to others. By providing a safe environment and a rich variety of activities, we can create a rewarding and valuable learning experience for young children that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives.
