Our mission

To make sure that our children have the best opportunity to explore and experience their environment, develop strong social-emotional foundation, challenge and satisfy their intellectual and physical capabilities, as well as provide healthy nutrition for their raptid growth.

Research has shown that 90% of a child’s brain develops in the first 5 years of life. As a preschool, we understand how critical and responsible our job is to provide the right environment for your child’s growth in the first 5 years. Recognizing this, our school offers exceptional early childhood education and child care services for children 2 to 5 years of age.

Imagine a place…

Where your child can develop social, behavioral, physical, emotional, and intellectual skills in a fun and healthy environment. Imagine that place specious, spotless clean, naturally lit, and extremely safe. Picture a nice outdoor space with beautiful gardens and safe playground. Then, wonder what if the place offers  full-service healthy nutrition served four times a day prepared fresh daily by a highly qualified chef serving hot breakfast, hot lunch, hot dinner, and a healthy afternoon snack. Think of a teacher who provides creative learning opportunities where your child is naturally motivated to learn and explore. Finally, envision your child going to kindergarten being fully prepared academically and socially.
