We believe in creating a stimulating environment for children in order to foster their learning, exploration and creative skills. We believe in having developmentally appropriate materials available to children at all ages to inspire them to use their own thoughts and ideas to investigate and learn. We believe in cultivating the art of inquiry along with critical and reflective thinking. We believe that parents play the most vital role in their child's education. Family involvement is the foundation for strong, quality education.
