 Some of our Favourite Core Values

Relationships: We believe building a relationship with one other can come in all different shapes and sizes; we embrace the power of relationship building between other children and staff that is healthy, caring, respectful and lasting.  

Appreciation: We encourage children to grow a mind of appreciation for all things in life; from materialistic resources to emotions/feelings of others. We encourage children to learn the “why” behind a situation to enhance their understanding of learning curves.

Acceptance: There is a wide variety of children that come from different schools, backgrounds and cultures. We teach our children to accept all as an equal – leaving no one left out.

Respect: We are passionate about creating an environment where all property, resources, children, and staff are treated with equal respect and care.

Integrity:  We expect our children to hold themselves to a high standard of honesty – encouraging them to take responsibility for their choices and learning from them.

Challenge:  We are confident that our children are full of greatness and are bound for a bright future! We work to enhance their confidence through activities, conversation, thinking and critique.
