Our Philosophy:

The ultimate goal of our school is to promote learning and appropriate behavior by means of positive reinforcement. Our goal is to promote the physical, intellectual and emotional well-being of your child by means of a naturally supportive and loving environment.

Children are transitioned naturally into our environment and at a pace that is comfortable for them. If a child is experiencing adjustment problems, she/he may be temporarily removed away from the other children into an area where she/he can be supervised and comforted individually by an adult. A child will not be allowed to hurt another child or to pose unnecessary discomfort to them.

The center reserves the right to adjust the child's schedule or grouping to better suit her/his needs. Parents/Guardians are encouraged to discuss any adjustment problems with the staff.

Corporal punishment, humiliation or frightening methods of control and discipline are not permitted under any circumstance. A child may not be deprived of food, rest or activities as a means of punishment. Punitive methods of getting a child to perform or achieve -including toilet training- are forbidden. All staff members upon employment will receive a copy of this statement, a copy will also be displayed within the center and made available to parents.
