Our Mission Statement

We believe that children need a safe as well as stimulating atmosphere in which to grow. A home away from home, where they can develop their social and other skills while having fun. We believe that they should have the opportunity to play safely at the same time participate in stimulating activities which will lay a foundation for their schooling. We believe that we should encourage the best of diet and exercise habits, which will help them, become healthy individuals. And above all we believe that a child decides his or her own pace of doing things, we shall not push them merely encourage them. Our structured sessions blend with the free playtime effortlessly, so that the atmosphere is like an extension of his or her home.
