    We offer a diversified, multicultural program; a print-rich environment; hands-on, developmentally-appropriate small group instruction; a music/movement program that promotes fine and gross motor skills; and reinforced acceptance of others by teaching the basic strategies for coping with issues that may arise when our students enter elementary school.

    Our comfortable and air-conditioned classrooms are organized into learning centers that provide a variety of opportunities for creativity, exploration, and discovery. Children have access to developmentally appropriate toys, puzzles, games, and arts and crafts—as well as a library, math/science centers, painting easel, sand/water table and dramatic play area.


    We provide an indoor gym program and outdoor play areas to support physical well-being, as well as to provide hands-on instruction as our students learn the important skill of following directions. All activities are well supervised by our professional and qualified staff members.


    We have received awards for our high quality child care program.
