Paragon Kids believes in building partnerships with our parents with the goal to support the overall development of each child. We understand the impact these early years have on their success in academics, social groups, school, careers and professional paths and most importantly, their personal views of themselves as an individual. Our Educators are conscious of every interaction with the understanding that how they speak with the children, their coworkers and parents are a large part of how children learn to effectively communicate. We value respect, individuality and inclusivity.  Respect for children to be children and understand that their main job is to make mistakes and learn from them through careful and intentional guidance from our Educators. We ensure each child is seen for their individuality and celebrate their unique personalities and abilities. At Paragon we understand the importance of early intervention and that implementing support for potential learning delays early on can drastically improve or eliminate potential life long struggles. We strive to give every child the best start to their futures in an environment full of love and respect while also doing our best to be environmentally conscious.
