Our staff is educationally prepared and experienced in the field of child development. Our goal is to nurture and guide your child in reaching their fullest potential.
We help get your child ready for Kindergarten by partnering with you and providing meaningful play-based activities and fresh, engaging learning experiences. We strive for physical, intellectual, emotional, cognitive, and social development and growth.
Our researched-based curriculum encourages children to remain actively involved in the learning process as they experience a variety of activities designed for each age and stage of development. We support your child's involvement as they explore individual interests through creative and dramatic play while using life in the community and the world as their backdrop. Children learn language, concepts about the physical world, social skills, emergent literacy, problem solving, motor coordination and self-confidence.
