Our curriculum ensures that we are developing the whole child. We are dedicated to each child’s academic, social, and emotional growth. We will provide many enrichment activities such as music, library time, art, and movement. Children often do their best learning through hands on experiences and structured play. We use a combination of teacher directed as well as child directed learning to ensure that we are meeting the needs of all children. We are committed to creating a lifelong love for learning by stimulating a child’s academic, social, and physical development.
