At Arsenal Family and Children's Center, we specialize in active learning through play and have built our programs on the foundation of research, experience and observation by experts who have been working with children almost since the study of child development began. We invite children to explore, create and manipulate ideas, toys and materials in ways that enable them to learn and grow in personally meaningful ways. Whether in our pre-school or toddler classes, we strive to develop children’s emotional intelligence and impart to them basic human values like compassion, honesty and respect. We also believe strongly in the importance of children’s relationship with their parents and offer programs that improve communications, allow parents and children to play together, strengthen parents’ skills and provide the additional support some parents may need.
