Our mission is to support the growth and development of school aged children, their families, and childhood professionals through children programs and services.

Our philosophy focuses on nurturing the individual needs of the whole child by balancing their daily experiences to address sensory and emotional development within a  play based environment. The program strives to build a safe community that respects diversity in all aspects, and encourages creativity through hands on projects using developmentally appropriate practices.
