We believe students need to have a balanced schedule. During our schedule, children should have enough time allocated for educational activities, relaxation and rest. A child's primary years are the most critical and we strongly believe that the most powerful influence in teaching young children is by the example set by adult behavior. We are proud to be part of this team effort in building a better future for all our students from Pre-School to School age.
We are proud of our commitment to high standards of excellence. Our staff has been chosen very carefully in order to provide the best possible care and education for your children.

Our clerical staff, food service and nutritionist, drivers, cleaning and maintenance staff, as well as our teaching staff, all are experienced and, in most cases, hold certification and special training in their respective areas of expertise.
We employ people who are warm and nurturing, who understand child development, can apply her or his knowledge in the classroom and respect each child as an individual. We seek employees who are committed to working as a team with parents, colleagues and volunteers.
