Program Highlights

An Invitation to Read and Write

We use diverse tools to help children start to write and learn letter and number recognition in a way that is fun and playful. We foster a love of literacy with stories, books, songs, and finger play.

An Invitation to Create

We provide a variety of opportunities and materials where children can feel empowered to use their imagination and create something unique and special to them.

An Invitation to Move

Yoga, music, and daily outdoor-time provide children with opportunities to move, jump, run, balance and become more aware of their bodies and what they can do.
