This center is run to the highest standards of safety and cleanliness. It is superbly equipped, with age specific rooms.  We encourage children to develop at their own pace and we provide a truly happy environment for your child to grow and learn.

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 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 goals of our Creative Curriculum.
