The large gated courtyard serves as an outdoor classroom complete with gardens, water play areas, and outdoor musical instruments.
Creative Curriculum is taught at all ages and is a nationally-recognized curriculum by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. Academic enhancements are offered to our Full Day students, including a Music Class, Ms. Becky's Literacy Adventure, Intro to Spanish, and Espresate' (Spanish immersion class).
The school is an allergy-safe facility and all meals and drinks are provided as part of tuition. A full-time, dedicated chef prepares wholesome meals, with Organic milk as a standard, not a special request as with most other preschools.
Our philosophy is that each child is an individual who actively learns at their own pace and in their own style. Our programs are build upon this understanding of child-centered, play-based learning in a relaxed - yet structured - environment that stimulates curiosity and enthusiasm for learning.
