Reggio Emilia Inspired Childcare

Our belief is that no two children learn in the exact same way, therefore, each educational and developmental program is customized according to the needs and interests of the child. Individualized plans will be created by a team of therapists, aids, teachers, and parents. Our plans are flexible, leaving space for strategies and interventions to be frequently analyzed and adjusted according to the progress of the child. Whether your child is showing any signs of concern in their progress or not, our center can help support and advance their development. ABS will concentrate on the interests and needs of the children by providing additional attention as a way to enrich their minds and interests. ​
