I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the community, and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live..."
It takes a village to raise a child...
We recognize that healthy child development takes place best in the context of a community based upon healthy social relationships among parents, teachers, and children, and we strive to create such conscious, collaborative communities around our care for children.
Communities are intentional. Their success lies on the combined effort of everyone involved in it. When present, we take the time to engage in, to learn from it, to celebrate with it, to participate and to contribute in any possible way. Participation is a vital part of any truly successful, vibrant, and strong community.
A healthy social life is found only when, in the mirror of each soul, the whole community finds its reflection, and when, in the whole community, the virtue of each one is living ".
