Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide a safe, nurturing, creative environment where children can learn about God and His world. We aim to help children develop a love for learning and to instill in them positive attitudes and behavior necessary for school success.


We believe that children are a gift from God. We seek to create a loving and nurturing environment where children can learn, explore and make new friends. We strive to create learning experiences that are age-appropriate and foster curiosity, creativity, and meet our children’s individual learning styles. Our programs encompass a balance of structured and self-initiated activities that provide for growth socially, emotionally, physically, creatively and academically. Our goal is to give your children the best possible start in their educational journey.
