Staff & Style

Our Great Staff!

Our caring dedicated staff are highly qualified.  We are all certified by Early Education and Care and trained in CPR and First Aid.  All our teachers have many years of experience teaching in early childhood education.  We feel that the early years for children are foundational to set a tone and experience a life long love of learning.  We make learning fun and meaningful each day.

Lots of attention!

Our small class size ensures quality interactions with our students.  We individualize our approach to learning to each child's unique needs and abilities.  We offer two conferences a year with a written progress report on children's developmental progress throughout the year, our special programs throughout the year are a highlight for children and their families.

Our Style

Our talented teachers help children to navigate individual developmental challenges in positive and encouraging ways to promote confidence. We find that our team-teaching model is invaluable in providing insight to help enhance each child's developmental path.  We use a hands-on approach for interactive learning by exploring, investigating, creating and inspiring imaginations that ensure competent readiness skills.
