Our Center Based and Home-Based programs are designed to promote school readiness of children ages three to five by supporting the development of the whole child. Regardless of cultural background or special needs, every child is offered a variety of learning experiences designed to foster and develop physical, social, emotional, and cognitive growth and to develop an appreciation for ethnic and cultural diversity.
