B'Above Worldwide Institute


Our Mission

Our mission at BeAbove is to create a comprehensive, multicultural service agency that guarantees satisfaction and is consistently responsive to the needs of our children, families, and community. This is to be carried out regardless of race, creed, ethnicity, or disability.


Our Philosophy

BeAbove provides a safe, healthy learning environment that stimulates curiosity and joy in learning.  BeAbove believes that children’s play provides the foundation for academic learning (“Children learn best through play”). Play is the “work” of young children. The philosophy that guides the program is that young children learn best by doing and that parents are children’s primary teachers. 

  • “We” believe that parents and teachers must work together in order to support the development of young children.

  • “We” believe that learning is not simply repeating what someone else says; it requires active thinking and experimenting to find out how things work and to learn firsthand about the world we live in. 


To provide children with these experiences we provide the necessary enrichment materials and environment to foster their learning in school and at home.

Our Program Goals

At BeAbove our goal is to provide learning environments that have materials and space that afford children with a safe and healthy place for hands-on learning and exploration.  Teachers and staff focus on creating a quality early childhood education program that focuses on both process and structure.


  • Preparing children for kindergarten and future experiences by helping them to become independent, responsible, confident and ready for “school success”

  • Supporting parents as the primary teachers of their children

  • Promoting children’s health and well-being through comprehensive assessment(s) and services and ensuring their safety through adherence to safety standards and procedures (compliance with all City, State, and Federal Regulations)

  • Providing comprehensive services to help parents better help their children grow and develop (understand “age appropriate” – developmental milestones)

  • Providing on-going monitoring that assures that teachers have the tools and support necessary to meet each child’s needs

  • Teachers create a classroom flow that supports smooth transitions throughout the day

  • Family Involvement - programs invite families to be part of their children’s learning and development; in school and at home (“Home-School Connection)

  • Family-style meals - where children are encouraged to share.  Family Style Meals help children develop their social, physical, cognitive and creative skills.

  • Develop intensive staff training programs that provide staff members with hands-on learning directly related to their positions

  • On-going child development assessments – formal assessment conducted three (3) times a year

  • Automating all agency wide communication and database management systems.

  • Provide policies and procedures that clearly outline program operations, and expectations of all staff and parents.
