Our Philosophy We believe in teaching the “whole child.” Each and very child has their own strengths and weaknesses and it is our responsibility as adults to help strengthen their weaknesses and build on their strengths, based on the needs of each child. It is important to not only educate our youth academically, but also to teach them life and social skills that will prepare them for the future. We believe that children perform better academically and socially when provided with a safe and comfortable environment that is consistently positive and encouraging.
