  • If you were to visit at any given time, you would notice a calm hum of activity.
  • Students of mixed ages learning and growing together - Preschoolers counting, scrubbing tables, feeding the fish, writing stories, creating art, singing songs finding ways to engage in learning that is as natural as breathing! Elementary children might be exploring astronomers and constellations, diagramming sentences, singing songs about the earth, or working together to take care of the campus.
  • Our Preschool- Kindergarten campus is located in a converted cedar home among two acres of woodland property.
