Curriculum – Our state approved ‘Early Childhood Curriculum’ is grounded in the latest research that embraces your child’s natural curiosity at every age. We also strongly believe in the overwhelming benefit of play. Play weaves together many aspects of their world and helps them digest it in their own way. It is a central activity in their lives. From infants to preschoolers, we keep the spirit of creativity and active learning alive and growing.
