Using the High Scope curriculum and STEM, Teachers focus on building a child's self-esteem and confidence in a child centered, hands-on learning environment.

We are the only center in the area that offers a NATURAL PLAYGROUND.
Research shows the following benefits of a natural playground over a commercial one:
CHILDREN WITH VIEW of and contact with nature score higher on tests of concentration and self-discipline.
PLAY WITHIN A NATURAL ENVIRONMENT is more creative and imaginative which fosters language development.
EXPOSURE TO NATURE improves children's cognitive development by improving awareness, reasoning and observation skills.
PLAY IN OUTDOOR environments is important to children's development of independence and autonomy.
