At Prima Day Care they believe that every child has the drive to learn, that teachers are co-learners because they learn from the children as they teach the children. They believe that this constant cycle of learning unlocks the child’s potential. “The child is like a little scientist exploring and experimenting on his or her environment on a quest to find answers to his or her never-ending stream of questions.”
