For the child:
1. To provide opportunities for being with other children in a setting that is conducive to the development of wholesome social relationships.
2. To provide an appropriate atmosphere to help children become independent, self confident, and inquisitive learners.
3. To provide a proper foundation that is based on the child’s individual needs, interests, handicaps, and abilities, and that will build important foundations for future learning.

For the parents:
1. To provide opportunities to meet and work with teachers that have common concerns and interests to fit the needs of their children.
2. To provide care for the child while the parents pursue their work or other interests.

For the community:
1. To help meet the needs of the community for an early childhood education facility.
2. To contribute to the wholesome growth and development of our children in the community.
3. To enhance the role of Kids Ahoy Learn and Care Center and become an important part of the community.

The Philosophy behind the Kids Ahoy curriculum is that young children learn best by doing. Learning isn’t just repeating what someone else says; it requires active thinking and experimenting to find out how things work and to learn firsthand about the world they live in
