Our educational program is based on child development and our goal is to give children a sense of self-worth by helping them develop at their own pace while learning basic skills. We want children to feel confident and secure enough to explore and grow in a stimulating educational, inclusive, diverse, and social environment. Health and nutritionist snacks are included.
