Philosophy Statement

We strive towards a nurturing, welcoming environment in which all children can develop and enhance their existing skills.  We believe children learn through play as well as child-initiated and teacher-supported activities and experiences.  Our programs are created to support all areas of development.  Through reflective practice educators will continually evaluate and make adaptations based on children’s responses, interactions and interests.
