Once upon a time...

There is something about parenthood that gives us a sense of history and a deeply rooted desire to see our children’s imagination and sense of curiosity grow and thrive. We want the next generation to love learning, science, art and creativity. We want them to have the tools, the acceptance and the open-mindedness to be whatever they want to be. To do anything they desire.

The universe is vast. Still we know there is so much more that is unexplored, and that we don’t know. We want children to be willing to experiment, celebrate, cultivate and grow their character. We want them to be children who thrive on connections with those who are both similar and diverse in their cultural backgrounds.
