Our philosophy of education stems from the idea that young children learn best through fun creative play and interaction with others. The early years of life are important in terms of learning, exploring, and creating. Smart Start Creative Learning Center provides an early education for children ages 18 months through 1st grade. We are dedicated to providing excellent care and education to every child who attends our facilities. We consider these early years critical, not only for the world of knowledge waiting to be learned, but because basic attitudes are being formed — about their world, people with whom they are in contact, and most of all, about themselves. Each child is valued and respected as a person. We are committed to help children learn problem-solving skills, to become responsible for actions taken and to develop increased control over body and mind. Emphasis is on the whole child. Our staff, composed of skilled, caring teachers trained in early childhood education, is committed to helping each child reach their full potential in the emotional, social, physical, creative, intellectual and cognitive domains.
