Our belief is that, in a relaxed, nurturing, and playful multi-age setting where children are safely guided yet free to make their own choices, a child can enhance friendship making skills, try something new, learn from experience, and extend their interests and talents, all of which are critical life-long skills. Our goal is for every child to feel comfortable with whom she or he is, be respectful of all others and the environment, and grow strong, physically, socially, emotionally, and intellectually. We aim to assist every child in growing as an individual and as a member of the community. To quote Piaget, "Play is children's work". We take that "work" very seriously.
