Our Philosophy

We believe each child is a unique and precious gift to be received and nurtured moment by moment, day by day.

We believe that each child is uniquely gifted and take great joy in allowing these gifts to unfold according to the child’s own timetable.

We believe that children are best able to discover and develop these gifts through self-directed play that is carefully observed, nurtured and extended by skillful, loving teachers.

Our commitment to serving children also compels us to serve families, helping them lay a foundation for a lifetime of love and learning.

We believe that our most important work is to build relationships with children and their families and that these relationships will have lifelong benefits.

We pledge to receive each child and family where they are each day, enfolding them in a circle of support and growing with them toward a better future.
