About The Muse
The Muse: A Children’s Center offers high quality, licensed child care that emphasizes a child-centered approach to early learning. The Muse is a program of the Greentrike. At The Muse children are seen as capable, contributing, and compassionate citizens of our community who partner with teachers to discover exploration and learning opportunities within their environment. We promote school readiness by developing critical thinking and social-emotional skills through play based learning that includes math, science, and the arts.
The Muse : A Children’s Center is inspired by the schools of Reggio Emila, Italy, where the image of the child is seen as capable, competent, and with high potential. At the heart of this approach to early childhood education are the relationships between families, children, and teachers. We believe children are valuable citizens and contributors to the community and that teacher’s partner with children in the learning process.
