To serve you and your children with the best care possible. To care, assist, reach and education your child using the most creative and effective means of teaching while in our care.

Philosophy

We believe that the quality of childcare facilitates growth and development of each child, that exposure to the arts, music and science creates an environment where children can go beyond creative. Each child in our care receives an educational experience that is imaginative, stimulating and fun. Opportunities through play, decision making, and social interaction with peers are fostered through a loving environment.

We recognize that every child learns differently, therefore we will always use every type of learning style to assure state objectives are meet. We utilize Tri-County Therapy for annual assessments as we realize our children’s success is measurable and can be progressive if they receive the proper assistance when needed. Our environment will create and atmosphere for physical, cognitive, social and emotional growth, as we provide a safe, affordable service for the Charleston Community. Every child has equal value to our program and we actively work to promote and support full inclusion of children with diverse abilities and disabilities as well as those from all socio-economical, ethnic and religious backgrounds. Our children are treated with respect and are made to feel safe and secure.
