Our pre-nursery programs are play-based, open-ended classes that encourage exploration, growth, and discovery. We believe that children are capable, unique individuals with particular learning styles and interests. Through our child-centered curriculum we aim to support and foster the creativity of each individual child. We believe that children thrive in nurturing, warm environments that are set up with them in mind. Our teachers encourage children to make choices, to be empathetic, and consider their place and role in their classroom community. We see teachers as facilitators of positive, appropriate, engaging experiences that support the needs of the specific children in their care. Through our pre-nursery programs we strive to create an inclusive, fun, engaging environment where children and families can become a part of a community and develop lasting connections.
