Language development, early science and math concepts, and pre-reading skills are learned in an environment rich in discovery opportunities.

Each child will learn in their own way and own pace. We will encourage, but never pressure or rush your child to learn any skill. We respect each child as an individual and recognize that God has uniquely made them.
