Reaching Out (video)

Our Focus:

Our curriculum is based on current early childhood educational theory.  We believe that children learn first about themselves and then the world around them.  Through self exploration of their environments, teachers are able to guide children based on their individual interest, learning styles and cultures and encourage positive growth and development.  We focus on the individual need of every child, recognizing that each child is unique and learns at their own pace.  We provide a developmental program which:

  • Nurtures and facilitates growth                  
  • Fosters each child's sense of self 
  • Fosters diversity amongst all   
  • Encourages critical thinking 
  • Fosters each child's positive self esteem
