Philosophy

Our holistic approach and play based programs foster children's physical, emotional, social, creative and intellectual growth. It helps build a sense of wellbeing, belonging, and social responsibility. Based on children's interest and curiosity for learning, activities are provided to explore and experiment with a variety of materials that help to build an understanding and appreciation for the world we live in. Arts and literacies, outdoor play as well as parent-assisted field trips are part of our program.
