Our Philosophy

Our goal is to provide a child-centered, experiential-based environment that promotes physical, social, emotional, cognitive and language development.  This holistic approach uses a proprietary curriculum that has been classroom-tested at two childcare centers in Draper since 2012.  It includes an emphasis on Character Development, Music Appreciation and Instruction, Drama and Speech, Dance, Art, Physical Activity and Movement, Language and Literacy, Reading, and Discovery and Exploration in Math and Science. 

 

As part of tuition, this program is enhanced for school-age children through a variety of electives. Electives include piano, voice, art, martial arts, foreign language, dance, sports fundamentals, and community service.
