From the Director:

We know what the kindergartens expect (we are all credentialed teachers), but we want the child to explore and learn as well as enjoy school.

Having fun while learning, and letting children be children.

A Typical Day

Handling Separation: From the Director

We take the lead from the parent. There is a room for parents to wait, etc.
