Our mission is to provide excellent early education (bilingual) and loving care for young children. The most important part of our job is to create an environment of unconditional love and support so that students may fully participate in the many learning possibilities we offer. We help develop independence and confidence in our students, all the while making sure to provide a bright and safe place for young children.


As a provider of bilingual education in Virginia, our vision is to be a center of integral development in which children aged two to five can develop basic knowledge and fundamental skills to succeed in life.
