We believe that children learn from play and hands on activities. Family structure is an important basis from which the children grow and develop. We believe in respect, cultural differences, and uniqueness of each individual child and family.
We believe in promoting self-esteem and confidence through developmentally appropriate activities. We base our commitment to children on these beliefs.
