Our mission is to shape the social, emotional and intellectual development of children with varying abilities in partnership with families and our community. We strive to maintain a developmentally appropriate environment, which fosters individuality, creativity, and respects academic and cultural diversity. We seamlessly integrate children of varying abilities into our classrooms. Together we support our children by holding each child to high expectations in hopes they become empathetic lifelong learners.
