The Children's Secret Garden - Philosophy

It is the philosophy of The Children's Secret Garden Inc. that all children have the right to develop to
their fullest potential in a natural setting among their peers. Our belief is that "play is the work of
children." Activities at the center are developmentally appropriate and take place in a fun and relaxed
atmosphere. A multidisciplinary team of nurses, therapists, educators, nutritionist, and a social worker
deliver holistic developmentally appropriate care that celebrates the individual child. LOW patient to
nurse ratio's is a cornerstone of our philosophy.
