We believe that all children have the potential to learn, to advance from their peers, and to be well-rounded, good people as they grow older. Not only do we take care of your little ones while you work, we also teach them values and lessons about the world around them through interactive learning. We understand the importance of raising children to their fullest, and we hope to assist parents in this regard when their child is under our tutelage.

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

All children are capable of learning.

School History:

We started this learning center in 2004. I studied and took many classes in the state of Maryland in order to get my license. I immigrated to America from Bangladesh with a dream to help nurture and care for children in a way that made them feel safe and comforted in my arms while giving them the confidence to practice what they learn. This license only further improves my ability to do so. Since then, it's been my mission to help parents through this childcare.
