Our Mission

Lil’ Buds Day Care believes in respect of the child and the family. We want to create in each child the ability and willingness to learn. Every child has unique gifts and talents and it is our goal to support that uniqueness in a safe, clean and educationally prepared environment. By creating a safe and appropriate environment we will be able to guide children in the various stages of their early development. This safe environment gives children the time they need to explore and practice with their minds and bodies. It also allows them to exercise curiosity and imagination as well as to learn socially appropriate boundaries. Our secure environment allows them to manipulate materials and develop social relationships. In sum, we enable children to develop at their own pace and become confident preschoolers. We promote numerous diverse experiences to build confidence and respect. These two attributes are the foundation for the child’s future. At Lil’ Buds, we believe we have created a program of growth and learning that respects children and their families. The positive experiences and opportunities presented to each child will teach them that they belong to a varied world of similarities and differences.
