Mission Statement

Our mission is two-fold:

  • To provide high quality professional training for pre-service early childhood professionals.
  • To support children in reaching their highest developmental potential by creating and maintaining an enriched environment that is developmentally appropriate for learning. We aim to empower parents and families to participate in and enhance their children’s education.

We strive to provide a model program that includes parent involvement, professional development and a collaborative experience that is focused on the well being of children and their teachers. Our success is realized in the growth and development of children and families.


We, the Preschool Staff believe;

All children can and will learn
Children learn best in a nurturing, safe environment
Families and community are essential to child development and learning
All children can become contributing members of their community
