General School Mission

The goal of Giggles n Grins Academy is to produce happy, intelligent, well-adjusted children. Here you will find a nurturing, educational environment for children of ages newborn to 4 years. Classes include toddler, preschool, kindergarten, elementary and after-school programs.

We recognize that each child has unique talents, learning styles and personalities. Our highly-qualified teachers and staff are committed to working within each child's comfort zone to ensure optimal social, emotional and educational results.

Classes are kept to a low student-teacher ratio and often fill up quickly.
