Young Child Program

Children take great leaps toward independence and learning techniques for self control in an active & loving environment.  We believe children need hugs & love and encouragement as the explore and grow.

We believe that safety includes cleanliness and quality food. We extensively clean our academy day and night - ask us about this when you come in for a tour. We also adhere to the special food allergies needs of each and every person in the academy as part of our daily services.

It is our sincere desire for every child who leaves the academy to be academically, socially, and emotionally ready to be at the top of their peers in Kindergarten or First Grade.
