School Notes

  • Our Early Childhood programs focus on the foundational needs of growing children from ages 3-5 years old.  If you are looking for affordable, quality alternative educational programs for your child, please visit our website and call our center to schedule a tour.             
  • We are a community where children, teachers, and families learn together in a nurturing environment. We honor children's curiosities, interests and unique capabilities to encourage and open the door to life-long learning. We are inspired by the Reggio Emillia Philosphy which supports the idea that children communicate their thinking and problem solving through interactions and relationships with each other and materials.
  • Our thoughtful, interactive classrooms are abundant with accessible art supplies, as well as recycled and open-ended materials all tools that support development and expression. We believe that open play, rich in imagination, is at the heart of learning and is essential to a child's healthy development and growth. We strive to support and extend open imaginative play, through environment, materials, dialogue and collaboration.            
  • We establish a grounding in environmental awareness through observation, nature exploration, outdoor class time and recycling. Our outdoor space is simple, allowing room to run and imaginations to be active. Unique to our programs are access to an art studio, dance room, and music room, allowing us to work with small groups of children in each area. We can also view the variety of art exhibited in the courtyard.
