Discover why we are
a Premier Early Childhood Center
Provide a rich
for children with endless opportunities.
With so many choices in preschool these days, how can we be confident to say “we are the right fit” for your child?
Our mission is to provide children the tools to promote social, emotional, physical, intellectual, and cognitive growth.
Our approach to education is inspired by a combination of the High Scope curriculum infused with elements of the Reggio Emilia approach to learning.
It Feels Like Play
Through Block Play children learn to problem solve, expand imagination, build self esteem, develop social emotional skill sets and mathematics such as comparison, length, and balance to name a few.
Environmentalists at heart
By staying away from the regular “cookie cutter” type materials commonly found in most preschool, our use of non-common recycled materials in our Atelier (art room) allows a wider range of creative freedom. It also builds appreciation for the environment and lessens waste.
Keeping the Child in Mind
Intentional and thoughtful architecture from the start such as, child sized sinks, bathrooms, and classroom shelving, builds confidence and a strong sense of independence in the children.
It has to be Real
“Eco friendly and real” is how parents describe our outdoor natural playscape. We believe children should be able to experience the outdoors in its natural state. They should be able to see birds nesting, find insects, plant a garden, experiment, theorize an interact with the environment hands on.
Walls become teachers
Each child progresses at a different rate than the other. By constant exposure and immersion in a content rich environment of words, letters, and documentation they naturally learn to write, read and express themselves in their own time and at their own pace; all without forcing them before they are developmentally ready.
Respect for the child, a commitment to the profession, and creating relationships with parents and caregivers, allows us to build a community of learners, teachers and truly happy children.
What Our Parents Have to Say
I went in for a tour and fell in love with the school! It is absolutely stunning, my favorite part is that they have a bilingual program in the classrooms and offer extracurricular classes like cooking class and art class. Every teacher that I stumbled into during my tour was friendly and welcoming. My child did not want to leave!Jocelyn H.
