Early Education & Preschool That's More than Daycare

Welcome! Our team of teachers is dedicated to providing an enriching experience for all ages and stages. The STEM Lab is the perfect place to experiment and explore, and the Music Exploration Room encourages creativity and imaginative play. Our outdoor gardening boxes allow little hands to dig in and explore their environment, and the Growing Readers nook is a cozy place to foster a love of literacy. Unstructured downtime is also important, and our Movement Matters Zone and expansive playgrounds provide plenty of room to run, jump, and play.
