As preschoolers gain more self-esteem, they may feel ready to take on the world. Our Preschool program enhances that confidence by providing activities to help children become problem solvers and lifelong learners. Through independent exploration, structured activities, and hands-on learning, children will work on early literacy, math, science, and social studies concepts. A healthy dose of running, jumping, and dancing keeps them active too.

Ages 2-3:

Let us help your 2-year-old develop his/her independence and confidence in a setting that encourages a sense of community. We plan your child's activities based on a program grounded in early childhood fundamentals. Your young learner will increase her language ability, practice early counting skills and learn to cooperate with friends through group activities.


As toddlers develop friendships, self-esteem, and curiosity, our Toddler program will help them explore their world in a safe and nurturing environment. Our curriculum is based on the philosophy that children learn best through experiences such as circle time (learning letters & numbers in both English and Spanish). So each day is filled with fun activities, indoors and out, that excite and develop toddlers, giving them the comfort and confidence to speak those first few important words, as well as make their first friends.

Babies grow and learn every day. Our goal is to provide a safe and nurturing "home away from home" where babies can explore and make new discoveries. We know that learning through play is extremely valuable at this age and our Infant program is designed to give babies the skills that will serve as the building blocks for a lifetime of learning.
