We believe early childhood should be a time of fun, warmth, security, exploring and discovery. Preschool children are creative and receptive; our staff strives to nurture and encourage these qualities. Our purpose is to provide a child-centered, loving and enriching environment where a child may:
- Develop a life-long love of learning;
- Gain independence and self-discipline;
- Learn appropriate skills to move into the next phase of self-directed learning with confidence and enthusiasm; and
- Learn respect for himself or herself, for other people and for the planet.
Although we offer different types of programs – toddler, preschool, kindergarten, early morning care, enrichment and extended day enrichment – they are all part of a single, cohesive educational process. Ideally, children participate in the full, three to five year BHMS experience.
