CHILDREN THRIVE HERE
Because children are naturally curious, our core curriculum, called “Creative Curriculum,” is designed to encourage your child’s emotional and social growth by leveraging his or her own natural curiosity and creativity. We encourage meaningful, hands-on learning at every opportunity.
Our mission is to work in partnership with families to cultivate children as whole persons, who demonstrate respect for oneself and others. We emphasize life-long learners and school-readiness.
Our curriculum is designed for children ages 33 months to 5 years.
