  • Studies show that the most important years of a child’s brain development, as well as a child’s ability to develop appropriate learning patterns, are from infancy to age five. We strive to provide an early learning environment that is tailored to each child’s individual needs in the areas of math, science, music, art, reading, language (Spanish), and social skills.

  • Each child’s unique gifts are honored in an exceptionally healthy, safe, and nurturing environment.

  • We believe in teaching the whole child.  We seek to educate the head, the hands, as well as the heart.

  • We balance academics with artistic expression and practical learning.

  • Daily Bible devotions will start each day to promote a strong core belief system that they will be able to draw from throughout their lives.

  • Sequencing, sensory integration, eye-hand coordination tracking, and learning to appreciate the beauty of language are a few of the activities we provide to help prepare your child for the next phase of school life.

  • Early childhood experts, and recent brain research studies, support the use of play-oriented curricula with young children. Concrete \"hands-on\" learning experiences advance children to higher levels of language, thinking skills and problem solving. Through these activities, basic skills are introduced, practiced, and mastered. A wide range of enrichment activities broadens the child\'s vocabulary, creativity, and experience base. 

  • Weekly Library field trips beginning at age 3.

  • Families are strongly encouraged to limit media exposure to maintain healthy routines at home which allow their children to fully experience childhood without the worries and cares of adult life. 

  • Parents and family members are always welcome during the school day. But be careful! We might put you to work!
