Our mission is to provide quality childcare for all families in a warm, nurturing, loving and educational environment. The childcare needs of all economic levels are served, enabling families to obtain employment or to further their education.


Our vision is to provide quality childcare for all families in a warm, nurturing, loving, safe and educational environment to make this a great start for their future!


Our responsibility is to introduce children to their first experience as a student in a classroom environment, lesson planning, social skills development and testing and evaluation. Lesson planning is the way we will introduce subject areas to them such as math, art, science and music. Social skills are part of our responsibility to make sure they understand the concepts of sharing, privacy and even respect. Testing and evaluation are important to access my student’s progress and abilities. It is also the responsibility of the teacher to be the leader and to make sure the environment is safe for all children. These are the skills they need in life. This is their foundation for the future. Education is very important. The reason I feel this way is because no one can take it away from you. Early childhood education is the foundation to something bigger and greater for your life. Health, safety, and nutrition are just a few other things we look out for in the students that we teach.
