Mission Statement

We believe that early childhood should be a time of fun, security, exploration, and discovery

Our goal is to help develop the whole child by providing a hands on curriculum that will foster academic readiness while also strengthening their creative abilities; with highly qualified teachers for each area of study. Through an arts enriched program we will integrate ACADEMIC skills in science, math, phonics, and language arts. MUSIC to aid brain development, DRAMA activities to enrich confidence and communication, DANCE training to boost large motor skills, and VISUAL ARTS projects to encourage and nurture creativity and fine motor skill development. Themes will be woven into each area of the schedule and activities will be coordinated between all teachers. For example, if the theme for the week is transportation then cars, planes, bicycles, and trains will be discovered in each area of study (art, drama, music, etc) while also discussing words, shapes, colors, letters and numbers that pertain to that theme. Through the arts curriculum children have so much fun learning, even when they don’t know they are learning!
