​Classes and Fees

Our Focus

Our 2's program provides a safe nurturing first learning environment.  Our free play, small group activities, and circle time encourages social interaction.  Children are introduced to a structured yet flexible daily plan designed to help children transition easily from home to school.

Our 3's program fosters positive relationships with peers and adults to play and work cooperatively.  We present age appropriate activities to promote development of fine and gross motor skills in preparation for reading and writing.  We use movement and multi sensory approach to skill building.

Our 4's program develops skills and confidence needed to build a strong foundation for kindergarten and beyond.  Children are encouraged to take care of their own needs, environment, and community.  We provide an atmosphere where each child can grow and learn in their own unique way.

Our After-care program will explore cultures around the world through music, snacks, books, arts and crafts and imaginative play.

All classes are 5 days a week.
