The school and development center aims to build opportunities for children with and without disabilities through quality inclusive childcare, starting at the age of 8 weeks old and until 5-years-old. The 25 direct care staff members represent 200 years of experience working with children with special needs.

In addition to increased academic performance, research shows that children in inclusive classrooms demonstrate increased acceptance and appreciation of diversity, develop better communication and social skills, show greater development in moral and ethical principles, create caring friendships, and demonstrate increased self-esteem.
