- A facility that offers warm, safe and engaging areas with adequate space.

- Materials that will stimulate the child's play and development.

- Curriculum that will enrich the child's day and help them to achieve their full potential.

- To recruit and keep quality teachers that are educated and compensated so they can continue to give their best to the children and families they came for.
