In our schools, visitors, parents and staff alike notice an undercurrent of purposeful busy-ness and order, punctuated by joyous moments of discovery and celebration. Classrooms are neat and orderly, filled with quality learning materials and colorful work from the children. Outside spaces include hard and soft surfaces, outdoor toys, play structures, trees, and garden areas, where available. Our facilities are well maintained and there are always clean, well-lit work areas with supplies, equipment and furnishings to assist employees in being productive and comfortable. Employees enjoy breaks and preparation times in areas that are relaxing and informational. Festive decorating highlights seasons, holidays and other celebrations. Classroom and school staffs engage in regular meetings, professional development opportunities and social events, within schools and company-wide, such as potlucks, birthday and holiday celebrations.
