About the Provider

Description: What makes our school so special? Imagine children having so much fun in school that they can’t wait to arrive each morning. The excitement of our preschoolers is the result of a team effort. Our teachers are enthusiastic about developing lifelong learners. They genuinely care about children, and have the sensitivity and knowledge to understand a child’s individual developmental needs and learning styles.

Our learning environment is built around children and their needs. It’s a place where children feel safe and ready to absorb what the world has to offer. Our classrooms feature well-equipped learning centers to allow hands-on practice of new skills in smaller groups. Outdoor time on our playground is built into every day’s schedule, weather permitting.

Nothing is more important than your child’s safety. We maintain records of those authorized to pick up each child. No child is released without proper authorization. All visitors to our school are greeted, asked to sign the Visitor Log and state the purpose of their visit. Picture identification is required from all unfamiliar visitors.

We know that parents play a critical role in their child's educational success and positive attitude toward learning. So, building and maintaining strong parent-teacher relationships is crucial to everything we do here. For children to get the best possible education, everyone needs to be involved. We’re proud that at our school, effective communication among parents, teachers and staff is a way of life.

After you've had the opportunity to review our website, please feel free to contact us to schedule a private tour. We look forward to meeting with you to gain an understanding of your child’s educational needs, and discussing how our school can meet them.
