Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Our program is designed to be a perfect combination of nurturing academics and fostering play and socialization. People often ask, "are you play based or academic?" For us the answer is simple, one could not exist without the other. The beauty is in the balance.

We nurture and educate the whole child, developing the intellectual, physical, emotional and social capacities of each student.

Our mission is to develop happy, healthy, thoughtful and well-rounded children with strong learning habits, who are prepared for kindergarten and a lifetime of learning and caring.
