individualized experiences that will help them develop socially, emotionally, intellectually and
physically -- at their own rate!
We believe that children learn best from each other. Therefore, we provide a
relaxed, creative atmosphere in which children can foster new relationships with one
another and explore a new environment and experiences. We also believe that children are
individuals with diverse learning styles and emotional needs; at Great Beginnings, care and
teaching is focused on the individual child.
