We Have a Lot to Offer!

Academic calendar year with flexible scheduling including morning only and full day preschool options.  Low teacher-student ratio enables us to focus on the social, intellectual, emotional, and physical needs of each child. Our model enjoys a low student/teacher ratio. We welcome parent involvement in our Early Learning Center and strive to create a community for families.

A parent recently sent us a letter regarding their child's experience beginning school this year. "...every little detail expresses care, love and connection with each child. I can’t thank you enough for the hard work you do." Reach out to us, we'd love to include your child in our early learning program too.
