Our goal is to provide your child with a rich and loving environment to grow and learn. Young children learn best through play and hands-on activities.  It is not the same to stick frozen cookie dough into the oven, as it is to measure, mix and roll the ingredients together to make cookies.  In our programs your child will play in the mud, paint, jump in puddles, make slime and have fun learning.
