Multi-Purpose Classrooms Invite Learning Through Play
Inspiring classrooms invite learning and dynamic play. Your child can take the lead in their education: paint a picture, read a book from the classroom library, or dance and be silly with friends.
Energetic Outdoor Play In An Amazing Playground
Playing outside is a big part of our day as we aim to spend at least 90 minutes in the open air daily. With space for outdoor learning, a garden to tend, and a black top for hopscotch or jump rope, our schoolyard offers endless fun.
Safeguarding Your Child’s Health With Clean Classrooms
Our teachers stick to a rigorous cleaning schedule every day, wiping counters and sanitizing toys. The evenings see a cleaning service that comes in to deep clean floors, carpets, and countertops since your child deserves a clean environment.
All The Safety & Love Of Home
Daily routines and being around familiar friends will give your child a feeling of security every day, and our loving teachers are always there to lend a helping hand or offer kind words whenever they need them.
Kinder-Ready With Power-Packed Lessons & Exciting Group Activities
With an emphasis on science, tech, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) activities and literacy, your child will be ready for learning in a kindergarten class. Cooperative group activities also round out your child’s learning so that they are academically and socially prepared for school.
Practical Life Skills For More Independence Now
Real-life, everyday skills are a part of our daily curriculum, like putting on a jacket or tying shoelaces. The sense of accomplishment your child gets from completing a task on their own builds up their sense of self-esteem, independence, and confidence.
Personalized Lesson Plans That Help Them Learn, Grow, & Develop
Teachers will adjust their learning plans according to your child’s skill level, needs, and interests. For example, if students show an interest in butterflies, the teacher uses butterflies to illustrate life cycles and migration patterns to keep the children excited about science material.

Boost Early Reading & Literacy Skills For Lifelong Learning
Learning letter sounds and syllables through songs, discussion, and stories are part of the daily activities. Our little library, found in every classroom, encourages your child to read or browse through a book when it strikes their fancy.
Gentle Guidance & Redirection Deepens Social-Emotional Skills
Our teachers use redirection to move your child away from any undesirable behavior gently. Your child learns how to cooperate with friends and how to self-regulate their emotions through respectful redirection.
Enrichment Activities Boost Your Child’s Creativity
In our Pre-K class, you may find your child painting at an easel or learning the words and actions to a silly song. Art, music, and movement are enrichments offered as part of our program to give your child a creative outlet and get their body moving.

"It’s like being a part of a family. They do so much for and with the children!!!"
Both of our children have gone to this location! The amount of education my kids received while here helped them transition into kindergarten. It’s like being a part of a family. They do so much for and with the children. The activities inside and out. Gardening, performances, fundraisers, plays, parties. It’s an experience I know I won’t forget!
