What Our Families Say

  • Toddlers- max of 12 students with 3 teachers so a 1:5 ratio
  • Nursery- max of 18 students with 3 teachers so a 1:7 ratio
  • Pre-k- max of 21 students with 3 teachers so a 1:8 ratio

Tell me about your curriculum?

We follow a school-wide thematic curriculum personalized for each age group. Concepts include literature/language arts, math, science, social studies, music, and movement. Themes include All About Me, Five Senses, Outer Space, Music and Art Appreciation, Ocean Life, Farm Animals and In My Garden. Lessons are hands-on and engaging fun for all.

How do you handle students that misbehave or act out?

Teachers are role models that guide by the language they use. Children have valid feelings and need to know that our teachers understand that. We spend time discussing feelings, emotions, and acts of kindness each month. Being partners with the parents is a key component in their child’s education.

How much time do you spend outdoors?

Classes plan for outdoor time every day. The time varies starting at 20 minutes. Students work on their gross motor skills on the playgrounds and fields.

What time is Camp?

Our 2’s and 3’s program have the option of a 9:00am to 1:30pm Mini Day or the 9:00am – 4:00pm Full Day

Will the day be too much for my child?

Each day is paced with a variety of types of activities. This allows each camper to successfully enjoy each day. Where necessary, our staff will break away with any camper who needs a ‘break’ from the regular schedule.

What do I need to send?

Each camper will need 2 bathing suits each day. We provide lunch, snacks, towels, water and sun screen!

Will my child get to try everything?

Absolutely! Each child will have opportunities to try every activity available at camp, regardless of age. Each activity will be tailored to suit the age group participating.
