Mission / Philosophy
Our Mission: Mary Johnson Children's Center nurtures children and families of all backgrounds to strengthen belonging and well-being.
Our programs are not conventional or fixed but instead aimed to support the importance of play and evolution depending on the interests of children, teachers and families.
We believe that all parents are the experts on their children and want what is best for them.
We believe that teachers are collaborators, researchers, and nurturers who are dedicated to supporting children and parents.
We believe in the extraordinary capability and intelligence of the children we serve, and their ability to construct their own knowledge.
As a school, our goal is to bring out the best in the children and allow them the opportunity to find their voice, and among all else find the rich potential and talent that each child possesses.
All children and families have access to high-quality care and education to ensure they become happy, engaged community members.
