Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

With our small group learning, it gives children an opportunity to excell or get additional assistance when needed.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Our philosophy is children learn through play. Each child is their own person and they need to be provided a safe, nurturing and educational environment where they can be taught respect for others and themselves. With our family style dining, we encourage open dialogue, where children can share their thoughts and ideas and be heard by their peers and their teachers.

A Typical Day

Each class has their own schedule, with the exception of infants who are on their own individual schedules. At the time of your tour, you can request a copy of your child's class schedule.
