Character development is another major focus of our childcare and early preschool program. Throughout the year, each locations choose a “heart project.” These campaigns give back to our communities both locally and globally. The children are able to participate in hands-on activities as they pay it forward to other children in need.
Featured Heart Projects
Alex's Lemonade Stand
The mission of Alex’s Lemonade Stand is to raise money and awareness of childhood cancer causes, primarily for research into new treatments and cures, and to encourage and empower others, especially children, to get involved and make a difference for children with cancer.
Little Dresses for Africa
The mission of Little Dresses for Africa is to provide relief to vulnerable children throughout the Continent of Africa and beyond.
