About the Provider

Description: Early childhood is the most critical period in human growth and development, for it is the period when the foundation for learning is laid. During these early years, learning experiences for children must be diverse, creative, and carefully planned based on sound principles of child development.

Our philosophy is that young children learn best by doing. Learning isn't just repeating what someone else says; it requires active thinking and experimenting to find out how things work and to learn firsthand about the world we live in.

In keeping with this philosophy, we provide a loving and relaxed environment for children from ages 2½ ‑ 5 where they can grow and develop at their own rate, develop a positive self‑image, learn to handle their emotions in an appropriate way, act on their environment, develop a sense of personal responsibility, and learn to trust and care about those around them.

The most important goal of our program is to help children become enthusiastic learners. We encourage the children to be active and creative explorers who are not afraid to try out their ideas and to think their own thoughts in order to become independent, self-confident, inquisitive learners.
