Our priorities are meeting each child with a holistic approach and promoting self love and positive self concept. We encourage mastery of core concepts in learning, cognitive skills, social, emotional and physical progress, plus inspiring a love of learning and a thirst for knowledge.

We understand that the early years are crucial years in a child’s development, and that these years lay the foundation for his/her journey as a person first, and student second. Our end goal is raising productive, well-adjusted human beings by fostering their uniqueness in a loving and nurturing environment.

We believe that through self guided play and a variety of hands-on experiences, children learn about themselves, their neighborhood and the world in which they live.
