Helping children through the stepping stones of life

PROGRAMS

EARLY CHILDHOOD CURRICULUM

The most important goal of our early childhood curriculum is to help children become enthusiastic learners. This means encouraging children to be active and creative explorers who are not afraid to try out their ideas and to think their own thoughts.


Our goal is to help children become independent, self-confident, inquisitive learners. We're teaching them how to learn—not just in preschool, but all through their lives. We're allowing them to learn at their own pace and in the ways that are best for them. We're giving them good habits and attitudes, particularly a positive sense of themselves, which will make a difference throughout their lives.
