Classes and Teachers

Using educational themes allows our teaching staff to convey subject matter in a concrete and creative manner to make your child’s experience in school fun, interesting and growth providing. By scaffolding exploration and providing a variety of experiences, children become life-long thinkers and learners.

A developmentally appropriate, hands-on program enables teachers to incorporate language experiences daily, allowing children to grow their vocabulary naturally. A balanced schedule is achieved through focused, quiet activities such as circle/meeting time, table activities, and story time. Quiet activities are then followed by opportunities for exploration during art projects, water and sand table activities, block play, music and movement, science center activities, and dramatic play.

Outdoor Time

Playground time is a priority and our time outdoors fosters small and gross motor skill development, appreciation of nature, and further social development.

Class Placement

Our Classes are created based primarily on age. Placement in each class is done in collaboration with the director, teaching staff and parents of applicants as needed and based on the anticipated year in which the child enters Kindergarten.
