OUR STAFF

Our loving and caring volunteer staff is equipped with basic knowledge and trained in each subject matter to provide each student with a safe, loving and affirmative environment.  We believe that children respond best to affirmation as their personal identity is being valued.  Who they are is not necessarily what they do.  

 

We train our staff to correct the behavioral issues but bring affirmation and confidence to the essence of the child.
