"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world". Nelson Mandela
In our center, through supervised play in a planned, stimulating environment, toddlers rapidly acquire a foundation of basic skills and capacities during the first two years. Motor skills develop, early language begins, traces of complex thinking appear and important social and emotional developments occurred by interacting with peers and adults.
In our center, preschool children enjoy spending time with other youngsters their own age and becoming involved with group activities. Structured educational programs introduce them to basic concepts in language, arts, math, science and social studies. We have specifically designed learning centers for individual and group projects that encourage children to make discovery about themselves, fellow beings and the world we all share and live in.

Share in our commitment to maximize each child potential. We encourage the parents to become active participants in school activities. When parents participate, children become enthusiastic and motivated feeling that they as well as their, are special.
Time is the most important investment you can make, time at home to extend love and understanding and time to maintain open channels of communication with your child’s teacher. Teachers are readily available for scheduled parent-teacher conferences in order to discuss specific needs of the child, academic progress or to simply assist with or answer any question concerning your child.
During the school year, children will be evaluated while performing age-related activities and tested on material covered in the curriculum. Written progress reports will be sent home for your review and consideration.
Another ways for families to be involved in our school are: Family members can do projects at home that will benefit all children in the day care, sharing aspects of their cultural heritage, sharing the special talents and interest, participating in a study something they are knowledgeable about, to participate in parties, food tasting, books fairs, bake sales, field trips, lunches and more.
