  • What Makes Us a Unique Place to Learn?

    Exploring creativity

    The center has an amazing ArtSmart program with 2 dedicated Art Studios (both inside and out) and a dedicated art teacher with a background in art. The art program offers children in every age group (including infants) unique and natural art supplies to develop group and individual a-typical art projects that are handsomely displayed throughout the building. People often comment how the center feels much like an art gallery with various sculptures, large and small canvases, paintings, and natural outdoor elements.
