  • Early Childhood Education and Character Education: a perfect match and how to make your school feel like a home. Before a child can flourish academically, character must be established and a trusting relationship with the family must be built. Families, students, staff and community members should feel welcomed, respected and part of the team. The caring community we create starts with the climate and culture of our building.
