    • 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.”
    • ( http://www.primaplayschool.com/about-us.html )
    • At Prima Day Care their “Mission and Vision” is: 
    • “ To help children see themselves as individuals and encourage them to continually express themselves in their own ways. 
    • To provide a safe environment and an orderly atmosphere. 
    • To teach concepts through structured and unstructured PLAY. 
    • To teach the child to become an independent and active thinker. 
    • To inculcate proper values and good habits. 
    • To monitor through teacher observations and security cameras, and to give constant feedback to the parents. 
    • To encourage family participation through varied activities. 
    • To enhance leadership qualities.”
