Our Programs


staff:child ratio = 1:4 group size 12

To ensure individualized attention for infants, we divide our classroom into two sections, with the youngest four infants spending most of their day with one primary staff member in the cozy smaller portion. Our playful approach encourages little ones to crawl, stand, walk, talk, and explore their surroundings. We inspire curiosity by introducing infants to what’s happening around them in group play and individual activities.

Our little explorers are given abundant opportunities to follow their curiosity and choose activities that ignite their imagination. Through playful exploration, artistic expression, and interactive circle time and music, toddlers connect, socialize, and share in the joy of learning. We cherish the importance of active play in nature, where they can walk, jump, climb, slide, play ball, and dance freely.

Preschool & Pre-K
