Curriculum

Children who feel good about themselves will be more willing to learn and take on new challenges. Our curriculum focuses on the child and their self-confidence. Self-confidence grows out of successful experiences! Our program will provide the kinds of experience that will enhance each child’s development. All children learn through play.
