ABOUT FIRST WONDERS & IMAGINA 

.

  • Children thrive when parents offer them unconditional support and are engaged in their daily activities and achievements.
  • We acknowledge that the primary caregiver’s involvement is instrumental in a child’s learning, and has many benefits in their motor-social-emotional development.
  • Our micro-community and cooperative learning environment offers children a continuous thread of experiences, weaving the net of learning connections between home, community and environment by fostering a deeper relationship between child and caregiver, and helping families to better integrate the children’ personal needs and interests into their learning environment.
