We believe every child needs and deserves a safe, secure and stimulating environment. Our curriculum is based on the whole child, his/her social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and creative development.
We see each child as a unique individual and tailor our program according to the child’s strengths, needs and interests. We believe in fostering cultural awareness and pride through an anti-biased curriculum and activities. We believe this environment is accomplished through a positive approach to learning with well-educated, skilled teachers. We believe that quality childcare includes communicating and working with the whole family through education, support and parent involvement. We strive to keep our services available and affordable to all families. Our preschool graduates enter kindergarten prepared for the rigorous academic standards of the International Baccalaureate (IB) education offered in the Skyline School District & at Lincoln High School.
We believe every person is a gift to this earth and each deserves excellence in education. Program accessibility lies at the heart of our vision for Linnton and its surrounding communities. A sliding fee scale is available to families needing assistance. Scholarships are awarded based on availability. Extenuating circumstances are taken into account when setting tuition rates. A confidential income statement with supporting documentation is required to begin the scholarship process.

Why Spanish at this young age?
The world economy is becoming “global” and the ability to speak other languages has become increasingly important. Preschool age children’s brains are in a stage of development that enables them to quickly learn new languages. Immersing children in a foreign language program has proven highly successful and popular. Children that are exposed to second languages between the ages of three to six and continue with the second language in school will as adults be able to speak their second languages without an American accent.
