Early childhood is a time to nurture a love of learning with a positive experience in a school environment that provides an opportunity to build, maintain, and develop a positive self-image with engaging teachers that allows children to develop their creativity and natural curiosity. Our goal is to help each child reach their greatest potential – intellectually, physically, socially, spiritually, and emotionally. Our state certified teachers are experts in early childhood development. The activities they provide allow students to explore concepts in early literacy, mathematics, science, and social studies while increasing fine motor, social and emotional capabilities with the introduction to Classical Education that they will continue to grow and learn in our grade school.
