Philosophy

In Loco Parentis: In the Place of Parents. Parents trust us to care for and support the healthy development of their child while they must be away for work. We keep this very important role at the forefront of our work as we connect with each family and every
child.

Therefore we are committed to supporting all kids. We acknowledge their individual differences and respect the right of the child and family to quality care. We create an environment that meets unique individuals needs, honors cultural diversity and
supports the characteristics of each child through:

  • Positive experiences and communication
  • High-quality, diverse curriculum
  • Behavioral expectations which encourage growth and development
  • Freedom for individual choice and incorporating youth voice
  • Attention to health and safety
