Give your child a

Wonderful  education

project-based learning in a safe,  supportive, & relationship-driven environment

Our Vision

We strive to create a committed and nurturing community that empowers every child to impact the world for good. 


Our Mission

To inspire, support, and empower teachers—creating a culture where everyday interactions with children are intentional and meaningful.


Our Beliefs

We believe learning is a natural process which begins at birth.


We believe learning is more meaningful when children are provided with an integrative and hands on approach to education. 

We believe the learning environment contributes to the child's experience by providing invitations to investigate, engineer, and communicate discoveries. 


We believe children are best prepared for school careers when they have had the support to feel safe, confident, and empowered.
