Individual interests, experiences, abilities, and needs guide the programming. Children have the right to be heard, listened to and influence decisions.

Our programs maintain an atmosphere that encourages flexibility and allows for freedom of choice within appropriate guidelines. We strive to reinforce family values and emphasize the uniqueness of each child by promoting positive attitudes and validating self-worth.
