Enriching learning experiences are provided, fostering intellectual, physical, social and emotional growth in a warm home-like atmosphere. Our program offers individual care in a small group setting. Special attention is given to each child based on his/her personal and developmental needs.

The program meets the changing needs of individual children by providing a safe and appropriate environment that is both challenging and stimulating.
