Start your child’s academic journey in a structured setting while they explore and discover interests in a fun, nurturing, safe and engaging environment.

Our focus is to encourage fun while learning the foundational skills needed for success in future academic and life-long settings. Both of our programs help students become well-rounded students through the following:

  • Play centered hands-on learning (literacy, math, science, and nutrition).
  • Developing routines and become comfortable with classroom structures.
  • Building positive relationships with other children and teachers.
  • Building social, emotional, critical thinking, match and reading skills.
  • Working independently and in groups to explore new ideas, question concepts and share their feelings.
