  • We believe all children should be cared for in a clean, safe and welcoming environment. We recognize that we live in a multicultural community and that all children and their families are unique and should be treated with respect.
  • We believe each child deserves the opportunity for play, exploration and development of self.
  • We believe all children should be supported in developing their personality and creativity as well as their emotional, intellectual, lingual, social and physical abilities to their fullest potential.
