Our goal at All Around Child is to guide children towards becoming "World Wise". World Wise children are holistically introduced to social, emotional, physical, and intellectual opportunities beginning at the infant level and continuing through the life span. Such opportunities are presented on a play-based, hands-on framework for learning where the child can explore and experiment: and where there is no right, wrong, or failure. Through play, our little explorers are building a constellation of skills and preparing for their adventurous futures.

Children learn by having fun. They learn to become independent while associating with others; by expressing themselves creatively through art and music as well as verbally before their own group; by awareness of right and wrong through interaction as well as through process of thought; and by awareness of love and how to express that love to others. Our program is planned around a developmentally appropriate curriculum where children are engaged in hands-on activities. This provides the children the opportunity to experiment and create, and through those experiences know that learning is fun.
