Age Range: Three to Six years old

Your child will receive a learning experience designed specifically to help them reach their full potential. Our focus on intellectual, social, and physical development is manifest in this hands-on approach to learning. Children gain experience through self-directed purposeful work resulting in critical thinking skills, fine and gross motor abilities, social and emotional awareness, and intellectual development all while they become increasingly independent. Peace, social justice and global citizenship are taught through cultural studies, grace and courtesy, and peaceful conflict resolution, cultivating a respect for all living beings. Students creatively and joyfully explore fine arts, music, dance, yoga, health and wellness, and playfully discover the foundations of academic knowledge such as literacy, math, science and cultural studies. We believe that all of these areas of development are equally important in early childhood and our curriculum is designed with this balance in mind and implemented by highly skilled educators.
