The activities at the center are designed to build a child’s social, emotional, mental and physical development while encouraging independence.

We base our pre-school year on a theme-based curriculum called the Creative Curriculum. The activities we plan for children, the way we organize the environments, select toys and materials, plan daily schedules, talk with the children, are all designed to accomplish the Creative Curriculum goals.
