Our content focuses on the timeless, enduring work of childhood: growing to be CURIOUS, CREATIVE, CARING, and CONFIDENT kids through JOYFUL LEARNING.
We encourage curiosity by tapping into kids’ interests and creating opportunities to question and explore. We give them the freedom to engage in new experiences using their natural curiosity.
We encourage creativity by celebrating self-expression and creative problem-solving. By fostering open-ended play and conversation and encouraging kids to figure things out for themselves, we nurture imagination and discovery.
We encourage caring by sharing our stories and the stories of others, giving children a chance to note our similarities and differences and to practice empathy, respect, and kindness.
We encourage confidence by creating opportunities for children to succeed, fail, and learn. We want kids to know they’re capable and to recognize their own worth.
