Our Philosophy

Where Our Children Come First

Our belief at Monkey Bars is that all children are capable, competent, resourceful, curious, imaginative and
inquisitive people. Monkey Bars provides a richly stimulating, innovative and caring environment which fosters
a child's natural curiosity and thirst for knowledge. The environment and program draws from the very best
early childhood teaching theories and practices from around the world with emphasis on the Early Years Learning Framework.

“Children learn as they play. Most importantly, in play children learn how to learn.” –

Fred Donaldson
