Philosophy of Education of the Young Child

Learning through play and hands-on experience is a cornerstone of our program. We believe that children learn by doing. It is our philosophy that the development of the individual child as a whole being, is attained through enriched activities, promoting healthy, inquisitive, and self-confident children. Many choices are provided within a carefully planned environment, providing challenges, support and success.
