Established in 1978, our preschool offers a creative, stimulating, child-centered environment whose primary focus is to build and enhance good self-esteem and effective social interactions. The physical setting is a developmentally active one that is full of learning experiences in which teachers and children learn from each other through constant interchange of ideas. Our quality program provides a wide range of materials that encourages each child to have fun while exploring their environment and broadening their experiences. Activities and routines for the day are purposefully planned to promote learning in small informal groups. The school reflects the staff's belief that it is crucial to recognize the uniqueness of each child by focusing on those character and personality traits that make each child different. Our developmental, "hands-on" learning approach has an educational component that leads to discovery and effective problem solving.
