Happy Children, Happy Future

Montessori activities

Our program is guided by a Montessori philosophy. Each day we spend 1-2 hours working with Montessori activities doing hands-on learning about self-care, practical skills, math, English, science, and development of the 5 senses.

Free play and Art

There’s always time for play! Free play is when we dive deeply into learning about relationships, practicing social skills and growing in emotional intelligence.

Outdoors everyday!

We’re outside for 1-3 hours everyday in the sun, rain, snow or mud. We dress for the weather and play hard!
