Philosophy and Goals
Our program is based on the assumption that all children enrolled deserve a positive environment. Education and wellness are also critical components. Each child progresses through developmental stages of growth, and it is the responsibility of staff to recognize and promote healthy social, emotional, physical, intellectual, and creative development. Challenges and positive encouragement are integral parts of development which advances continued healthy progress to optimum development. Children and their families deserve respect and equal access to services without regard to race, color, creed, religion, economic, or national origin.
