Sweet Peas Preschool and Elementary

Sweet Peas' Mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of children; helping them to gain independence, build self-confidence, foster creativity, and prepare for the challenges of tomorrow.
We offer a high-quality, culturally sensitive program that provides a safe, healthy, nurturing and supportive environment allowing children to achieve their highest potential.
We respect the dignity, worth and uniqueness of each child and encourage the involvement of family and community.
Children are encouraged to express themselves and learn about the world around them through the mediums of art, music, movement, natural science and literature.
We work to foster curiosity and growth while instilling a lifelong love and desire for learning.
While we focus on academics we also emphasize learning through "enriched play" and exploration.
When it comes to teaching, every child learns at his/her own pace, thus we encourage each child to explore and learn through hands on self-discovery.
Our classroom has developmentally appropriate learning centers with enrichment activities that focus on the individual learning levels needed to build a solid foundation.
