Our Principles:

  • Life is to be lived now.

  • Trust between a child and adult is essential.

  • Competence makes a difference.

  • Intelligence can be taught, and children can learn skills to deal with the world around them.

  • Ceremonies and rituals give order, stability, and confidence to troubled children.

  • Feelings should be nurtured, expressed, understood, and explored with others that a child trusts.

  • Self control can be taught, and behavior can be managed.

  • Time is an ally.

  • The group is important.

  • Our physical self gives the psychological self its protection, self image, and value.

  • Experiences of community must be learned in a positive way.

  • A child should know some joy each day and look forward to other joyous events tomorrow.
