Mission and Values
Preschool-age children have active imaginations and learn through play. Our teachers foster learning by nurturing children’s natural curiosity and our programs are designed to support children’s development through imaginative play, exploration and active learning. During structured activities, children increase their skills in communication, math and problem-solving. Teachers help children stretch their language skills by asking thought-provoking questions and introducing new vocabulary during science, art, snack time, and other activities. Children engage in a wide range of hands-on activities that challenge them to observe closely, ask questions, test ideas, solve problems and improve their physical abilities. Children develop healthy social and emotional skills, like managing their feelings, learning to express themselves appropriately and developing positive relationships with their peers.
