Our Toddler Program, designed for children ages fifteen to thirty-six month old, is unique. Bright and busy children are taught in two suites on the first floor of the Schoolhouse. Group size is small so that these young children may play successfully together, learn easily with one another. Our emotionally content and physically safe Toddlers grow in so many ways. For example, their verbal language increases exponentially and they practice sign language - because we know that the tongue is one of the last muscles in the body to become trained!

We offer two Pre-School classrooms of varying sizes for children ages three to five years. Depending on your child's learning style, one large group (average 18) and one smaller group (average 10) offer a diversified learning experience in which to pursue curiosity and growth. Located on the ground level of the Schoolhouse building, our Pre-School daily schedule revolves around time offered for imaginative play as well as skill building in academic, social, emotional, and physical areas. Master level Pre-School teachers design learning opportunities which include multiple languages, science study, music, movement, mathematics and so much more!
