Our “learning through play” philosophy promotes literacy, intellectual development, emotional response, fine and gross motor skill development, social competence, creativity, imagination and problem solving skills. Our program believes there is a relationship between play and cognitive development; play helps children practice what they already know and learn new things, it creates thought.

 Our program practices current and best practices in early education.  Our qualified staff practice our philosophy and provides creative play opportunities through our daily activities enhancing children’s growth and development while fostering the children’s confidence in themselves in our safe, supportive environment..
