about our program

about our program

We are a unique early childhood center that offers a variety of programs, including toddler groups, transition groups for 2-year-olds, and preschool classes. All of our programs share the common goal of allowing children the opportunity to use their innate curiosity and passion for exploration to make sense of the world. We have created a space full of physical, creative, social, imaginative and cognitive challenges and we encourage children to direct their own play and learning. Whether by accomplishing a new physical feat, making a friend, or experiencing the satisfaction of creating a work of art, it is our hope that each child leaves here with a feeling of success and competence. We live in a hurried, demanding world. It is our objective to provide a sanctuary where children can be children and do what they do best: learn through play.
