Educational Philosophy

Our goal is to provide a nurturing and dynamic environment that fosters imagination, curiosity and self-confidence in young children. Our classes promote cognitive, creative and social development through play, exploration and autonomous self-expression. This builds a solid foundation and love of learning.

Our classes focus on the process, not the final product. We encourage children to get messy, move freely to the beat, and explore the world around them in a safe, child-centered/teacher-facilitated environment. 

Our curriculum offers a wide range of classes that create a fun and educational environment for children ages 3 months to 10 years. We focus on the importance of age-appropriate development, which is emphasized by the design and progression of our program. Our youngest learners begin in classes that introduce socialization and stimulation. Toddlers then grow into programs offering education and exploration, most notably in our renowned preschool program, CitiSchool. 

Finally, our older students age into classes providing augmentation and continuation, which compliment their more traditional school programs.

Learning is exciting and fun!

Citibabes children receive the very best opportunity to grow and excel.
