We believe in preparing our children through the use of our curriculum (Creative Curriculum) aligned with DC Early Learning Standards and enhanced by the Core Knowledge Language Arts Curriculum.
We believe in our commitment to family’s engagement and empowerment.
We believe in cultural diversity and building a strong foundation in sensitivity through inclusionary practices.
Our programs are based on the life cycle of a Butterfly. As advanced insects, butterflies and moths have a "complete" life cycle. This means that there are four separate stages, each of which looks completely different and serves a different purpose in the life of the insect. Children develop and grow through these different phases of development into who they are and ready for their world.
