NW Children's School

At NW Children's School, we provide an environment secure enough so that children may explore their own feelings and find ways of expressing those feelings using their own personal learning styles as well as a means to communicate their own needs and joys to others.  We provide an atmosphere where children can learn without fear of failure or where attempts are appreciated.  We don't have to be perfect we just need to do our best!
