Our Mission Statement

To provide the children in our community and beyond with high quality education and childcare in a safe, respectful and inclusive environment that builds a life long learning foundation.

Our Vision Statement

Our Vision is to create, home away from home, environment where each child is loved and encouraged to their fullest developmental potential. We are committed to the families we serve, providing support and encouragement.

Open Enrollment

We accept children from one year all the way to 5 years old.

Our operational hours are from 7am to 5:30pm, Monday through Friday. Children need to be at school by no later than 9am. Children will not be admitted after 9am, as this allows our learning program to begin and continue without interruption.


Breakfast, Lunch and Snack are included in the tuition cost. Our lunches are catered daily and the lunch menus are provided to each parent upon enrollment. We strive to teach children on healthy nutrition and healthy habits so our meals are carefully picked in order to offer range of foods with different nutrients that children bodies need in order to grow and work properly.


Surveillance cameras are installed in each interior room and specific exterior areas. The viewing monitors are located in the office area to allow constant observation by the Director and staff. We have an open door policy and parents are always welcome to visit and observe their child anytime. We also have RING at the front door which shows us who is visiting our school before they enter.


In order to better serve our families we use Procare software that lets us share children’s day-to-day activities as well as developmental milestones, pictures and videos. We are also able to provide contactless check-in/out with the choice of either QR codes, GPS curbside or both. Communication is the key in building strong relationships and we stride on sharing every single detail about each individual child’s day while they are in our care.
