Our Philosophy and Goals


Each parent and child is unique. It is our goal to help you develop a parenting style appropriate for your family. We hope to support you in your role as a parent, enhance communication within your family and meet the specific needs of both children and parents. Little Wonders is truly a “yes” environment where a child’s choice is an important part of the curriculum. Our program provides the framework, materials and information to allow you and your child to learn and develop together.
