Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Students advance at their own pace. Never accelerated before they are ready nor held back to wait while others catch up.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Color Me Children's philosophy is that education is knowledge. You can always find something to do as long as you have an education.

We understand that children are natural learners. Our curriculum is based on the developmental needs of the whole child.

Our classrooms are multi-age groups accommodating various levels of academic skill. Students advance at their own pace. Never accelerated before they are ready nor held back to wait while others catch up.

Success motivates children to apply learned skills they have mastered to the boarder areas of academics and self-growth.
