Bright and Clean Learning Environment


A clean and bright learning environment is a key ingredient to successfully educating children.   We consider the need for cleanliness to be of utmost importance.  Our facility is cleaned daily. Toys are cleaned and sanitized daily as well.  During operating hours, we take full advantage of the sun and its warmth.  Rather than turn on a light, we prefer natural lighting whenever possible.  We’ve found this combination; a bright and clean learning environment creates a relaxed and secure atmosphere.  Come visit our facilities, we’re sure you’ll agree.
