We believe that the first years of a child’s life is the most important, helping to lay the foundation for all intellectual and emotional development to follow. We believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a safe, supportive, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively.
