Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

Day in the Life

General School Mission

We believe in a well-balanced academic program with an emphasis on learning, fun, motor-skills, art, and social development. We strive to provide a challenging, yet comfortable and secure environment that your children will want to be their home away from home. Our low teacher to student ratio ensures that every child gets the attention he or she needs.

We are owner directed and operated. Our personal attention to our staff, students and their families prove our thirty-year reputation for consistent high standards, caring and commitment.
