We approach everyday with imagination, innovation and most of all, fun! That’s why every curriculum includes a variety of intriguing activities that stimulate early brain development with a focus on creative play. And although it may all look like kids having fun, it’s also learning in action. It’s just another way that we make sure your child gets the most out of his or her school experience.
Additionally, we spend a lot of time just listening to and talking with the children. This type of positive interaction encourages the development of emotional, language, and social skills and enhances the development of a positive self-esteem. We also provide lots of opportunities for each child to develop personal interests at his or herown pace.
We believe that when a child is read to from a very early age, that the child has a vast vocabulary, is creative and grows up to have a love of reading. We have integrated lots of reading and story telling into our curriculum, and we encourage parents to continue this at home.
