Our mission is:

  • to educate the head, heart, and hand of each child by providing a safe, respectful and inclusive environment

We also commit to excellence and respect through a joyful, challenging and progressive program.

Above all else, we are committed to providing a safe, clean and nurturing environment where everyone values and acts in the spirit of:
