We have exciting programs for three-year-olds, four-year-olds, and a Bridge program for children who would be old enough to attend kindergarten but would benefit from a “bonus year” to achieve their educational and social goals.

We are the best value for your child- affordable nurturing, learning, and fun!

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Our teachers are experienced and loving. They aim to create an atmosphere where learning takes place naturally through fun, educational activities, experiences, field trips, and active play. In order to prepare your child for the ever-rising kindergarten standards and expectations in the areas of readiness, attention, fine motor skills, phonemic awareness, writing, social skills, and gross motor development, we upgrade and update our curriculum on an ongoing basis. This also allows us to take into account the needs of the individual children in each class.
