We Believe:

  • That every child has the right to express their feelings and to know they are valued.

 

  • That children have the right to grow up in a positive, healthy, secure and stable environment.

 

  • That the family, school and community greatly influence the development of the child.

 

  • That the most influential (positive and negative) periods in a child’s life occurs when he/she is young.

  • That access to cultural and recreational facilities promote a sense of citizenship and community belonging.
