  • NOW ENROLLING ~ Preschool and Kindergarten Prep

    Secure your spot today!

    Our preschool and kindergarten prep programs engage children intellectually, physically, emotionally, and socially helping them reach new milestones day after day. Teachers inspire curiosity and imaginative thinking, guiding the children by implementing a flexible curriculum that encourages skills in creative expression, literacy, math, science, technology, music, dramatic play, and outdoor learning.

    Additionally, foundational skills such as friendship building and having a positive self-image that will be crucial for success in school and in life are central to children’s daily learning. 

    We invite you to visit our center to learn more about our programs, meet our exceptional teaching staff and explore our classrooms and enrichment spaces.

  • S.T.E.M: Simple Machines and Inventions

    Make it Move!

    We ended our Summer Program with a study of motion! The children were given the opportunity to lift a stack of heavy blocks using a lever, paint with a pendulum, and  catapult a Pom Pom.

    The Preschool and Kindergarten Prep classes explored the basic principles of motion, gravity, and force. Our S.T.E.M activities give our students the ability to explore the ways in which machines -even simple ones, help people do work.
