The goal of our program is to focus on your child’s development, growth, and learning; and, to provide the greatest opportunity for success in later school years. We believe parents/families are the first and most prominent teachers in the children’s lives; therefore, as parents/families you will be asked to participate in the development of goals (inside and outside the classroom) for your child.
