Children First – The interests, strengths and needs of each child focus our teaching and drive the overall program.  As educators, we empower children and families with the skills and confidence to raise their collective voices.

Excellence – Achieving accreditations, reflecting on our practice and its continued improvement, and engaging in the field’s dialogue about emerging standards, we aspire to excellence.  At the heart of this commitment is cultivating a professional team of passionate staff and teachers.

Community Vibrancy – By allowing parents to participate in the workforce, attend school, and serve as volunteers, we are instrumental to community vibrancy.  We partner with families to raise the caring, responsible citizens of tomorrow.

Respecting Diversity – We respond to diversity among children, within families, between families, from neighborhood to neighborhood, and nation to nation.

Collaboration – We create an inclusive and dynamic collaboration of educators, families, and community members because this deepens our perspectives, allows us to work through differences, and facilitates innovative approaches.
