Early Childhood Education

The most important early goal in the life of a child is to become an enthusiastic learner. This means encouraging children to be active and creative explorers who are not afraid to try out their ideas and to think their own thoughts. We follow their interests so they’re engaged and excited about learning, and we do it at their pace so they learn in the way that is best for them. Here they are learning how to learn, not just for preschool, but in preparation for life, and when children are independent, self-confident, and inquisitive, they can do anything.
