We offer a friendly, respectful environment for children to play, learn, and express themselves while providing opportunities for parents and caregivers to meet and develop social networks. “Education is Power” the Elders teach us.

Being a parent is one of the most rewarding jobs you'll ever do. Children don't come with a "how to" manual and it can be tough at times. It doesn't matter how older your child is, you can:
Give your child love and attention everyday
Comfort your child when they are upset, sick or hurt
Play or read with your child everyday
Understand your child's temperament and what they can do for their age
Make sure you all get enough sleep and eat nutritious, good food
Be a good role model - children learn from what they see and hear
Have a routine for play time, meals, and bedtime
Praise and encourage your child
