Our mission is to help the children entrusted to our care obtain the social and academic skills needed to reach their full potential, develop character traits to build healthy, lasting relationships, and gain a leadership mindset that empowers them to impact the world for good.

We are a select Peoria early childhood education center that seeks to cultivate meaningful learning experiences for ages 2.5 to 6 years. Our project-based curriculum mixes play, nature, and hands-on, investigative learning. This allows children to develop their social and academic skills the way they learn best, through purposeful play and meaningful experiences. These authentic learning opportunities encourage collaboration and creativity while building on children's natural curiosity—making learning more meaningful and lessons more memorable.


We offer a safe and secure learning environment, professional and degreed teachers, exceptional facilities, enriching extracurriculars, and an app that allows you to receive real-time notifications about your child's day.
