From the moment you walk into our newly re-designed center you feel the energy and support of your child no matter what their individual need is. We work with our families to promote positive, supportive, nurturing relationships, which set the tone and provide a model for everyone. We encourage parents and teachers to work together to create the best possible experience for the children. It is important to us that we continue to build supportive relationships with families, and hope to collaborate with you to provide a wonderful preschool experience for your family.

About Us

We offer a stimulating educational program in a warm, nurturing setting. Each day, children explore materials on their own, participate in small group projects, join together in the whole group for stories, songs, discussions and play outdoors. Children are encouraged to grow in independence, curiosity and initiative, at the same time that they learn to cooperate, respect others and form relationships based on trust, fairness and sensitivity to the feelings of others.
