Our caring, experienced and certified teachers provide a nurturing environment for your child to thrive. With low child to teacher ratios, and through partnering with families, our teachers help each child fulfill his or her maximum potential.

Along with our educational curriculum, we offer scheduled events for children and parents to get to know other families through the Holiday Social, the International Dinner and our end of the year Family Picnic. Other special events include visits by Big Jeff, the Fun Bus, a petting zoo, puppet shows and magicians.
