Class Descriptions

My Grown Up and Me

My Grown Up & Me is a fun classroom experience designed to help the child achieve new milestones and promote development. This class is designed to encourage multi-sensory experiences to stimulate language, socialization, creativity and independence in your child. Child must have a parent/guardian with them in the class.

2-year old Class

The 2’s class is designed to provide a warm supportive environment for you child’s first classroom experience. Children are encouraged to explore, create and learn. We inspire our 2’s to discover new abilities in art, music, literature and language development through PLAY!

3-year old Class

The 3’s class presents a learning environment designed to help promote your child’s growth and development while we LEARN THROUGH PLAY. Our teachers will focus on communication (language development), creativity (a variety of mediums) and social/emotional growth (building on resilience and relationships). We balance light academic learning with socialization and lots of fun to inspire a love of learning. Children must be toilet proficient.

4-year old Class

Our teachers provide a hands-on learning environment that encourages preschoolers’ natural curiosity to learn through curriculum that builds confidence and resilience in a PLAY environment. We incorporate a perfect balance of academics and play focusing on pre-reading, pre-writing and math skills along with art, music and the skills of communication, collaboration and problem-solving. Our goal is to give our 4’s a full year of social-emotional growth in developmentally appropriate classroom routines. Children must be toilet trained.

4-5 year old (Pre K)

Provides a developmentally appropriate pre-kindergarten alternative to TK. We offer the same academic goals in a PLAY based program preparing your child for the academic years ahead. We offer a strong supportive base with a smaller student/child ratio giving us the opportunity to develop your child independently. As with our other classes, we incorporate a balance of academics and play focusing on pre-reading, pre-writing and math skills along with a strong focus on social emotional growth.

Enrichment Classes

Our classes are developed to help children learn to solve programs, think strategically and to love learning! Class offerings vary per season.
