“Our philosophy is to enhance the learning of all children and families. We strive to uphold the values of eliminating racism and empowering parents to help their children grow and learn physically, socially, emotionally andintellectually at each child’s own individual pace. Our program provides opportunities to make choices and developindependence and positive self-esteem. We encourage each child to be creative and solve problems with guidanceas needed.
We know that children learn spontaneously and actively through play; therefore play is planned to allow learningto happen individually or together in small groups.”
