We believe children are inquisitive, capable, innovative and knowledgeable. They are independent, responsible, intelligent members of our community who are full of imagination. Our educators provide rich and valuable opportunities that support children’s development by allowing them to pursue their own interests and encouraging them to try new things. Educators encourage safe risk-taking and risky play. Mud, glue, paint are common items in our play.
Indoor and outdoor spaces are spacious, intentional in its design and is thoughtfully arranged. Programs are open-ended, inspirational, and ignite the imagination of all who play within it.
