Mission: To offer a home away from home, in cooperation with parents, where children enjoy positive experiences while building their own self-image, appreciating others and understanding the world around them.

Environment: Separate indoor areas and outdoor fenced playgrounds are provided for each suite with safe, specialized equipment to enhance play and learning.
Staff: The center offers an outstanding team of professionals. Each person is experienced, creative, credentialed, and caring. Our staff has been well screened and well trained, including CPR, First Aid, and numerous on and off site workshops.
Parent/Staff Rapport: Parents and teachers exchange daily verbal and written communication. This shared focus is meaningful for everyone and helps assure smooth transitions and happy times. Parents are encouraged to participate in center activities and visit at any time. There are monthly newsletters, a parent bulletin board and parent groups.
Program: Children learn from play as well as benefit from many teacher-planned and guided multi-sensory activities. These include music, art, cooking, literature, dance, science, computers, listening center, gym, dramatic play, cultural celebrations, circle time, sharing time, onsite "field trips" and many more.

As members of The Learning Resource Center and The Morris Museum School Loan Program, we are able to provide many extra valuable, hands-on experiences.
Approach: Developmentally appropriate practices are observed. Small groups with excellent ratios allow for each child's individual needs. Children are given praise and positive reinforcement and helped to develop a sense of respect for themselves and others.
Summer Camp: Eight fun-filled theme weeks in an innovative outdoor setting. Tents, sprinklers, camp shows and more are added to our program. Exciting days and special events add up to a memorable summer experience.
