Their small class size and professional staff affords them the ability to customize the curriculum to each child''s needs. They have created an atmosphere where each child wants to participate and do their best. It''s amazing that after the 3 R''s there''s still time for foreign languages, music, etiquette, PE, and I-Pads.
