Are We the "Right Fit"?



Finding the right fit for your child's early education is quite an endeavor.  We recognize that there are many options available and you know what is best for your child's personality and temperament. Are you looking for a program that is structured and academic in nature, or one that is play based?

Of course we all strive to provide a "developmentally appropriate" program for children, but what exactly does that mean? To us, it means a true balance of structure and free play within a carefully planned daily routine. 

Structured activities designed with young children in mind, help children learn invaluable lessons which will determine future school success. Following directions, staying on task, and listening attentively are all very important skills that children are capable of learning.

Free play encourages imagination, creativity and learning through cause and effect while honing social and emotional development.


Our center based classrooms allow for constant questioning , exploration, and discovery while validating each child's individual learning style.  We strive to meet children where they're at, but not leave them there!


If this sounds like what you're looking for, keep reading, because we just might be the right fit!
