The first 2000 days of life is the most important developmental phase of a childs life creating the foundation for all future learning and life skills.
We have four classrooms each with programs directed to meet children's individual needs and interest at the age appropriate level. Our goal in each is to encourage independence, develop self-control, teach conflict resolution and problem solving, foster appreciation for diversity, foster positive self-image and encourage creativity.

Our Infant room can have up to 7 babies. The ratio is 1 adult to 4 infants. Our Lead Teacher Joann Mason works with the babies by using The Partners For Learning program. In this room we help them with so many of their "firsts" - first crawling, first steps, first
hand eye coordination skills.
14 children, 3 years to
5 years old
Our Preschool room can hold up to 14 children. The ratio in this room is 1 adult to 7 children. We also use the curriculum from Mother Goose Time that is developmentally appropriate for preschoolers.
