Day Care

We believe each child is unique and special.  Our program combines self-directed and structured activities to develop and stimulate a child’s curiosity, problem solving, language skills and self-concept.  Our goal is to develop a trusting relationship with the child, as well as, his or her parents.  The teachers at our PreSchool will encourage each child to develop at their own rate in a setting that is loving, caring and stimulating.  The basic concepts of reading, writing and math skills will be introduced throughout the curriculum.  We will assist at developing your child’s confidence, independence and resourcefulness in our classroom.  In short, we will encourage your child to think.
