Why Play Garden?

Each child is like a flower in a garden; everyone is unique and special, and each has his or her own growing timetable. In my 'garden' I will dedicate myself with patience and knowledge of child development to help them grow to their fullest. Ultimately I aim to provide the care, love, support, and attention they deserve in their growing years; hence the name 'Play Garden'.
