Our program provides a wide variety of activities to enhance each child's opportunities to play and learn. We emphasize a "Play Based Learning" approach. The atmosphere is warm and relaxed where each child's self-esteem is strengthened and opportunities are given to promote independence and success.



Our dreamers program is for our infant program, ages 3 months-2 years. The mission for this group is building a strong attachment in a safe and loving environment. We offer small child to teacher ratios and quality care that nurture’s developmentally appropriate play experiences.


Our explorers program are our toddler program, 2 year olds. We strive to promote a play based environment that encourages learning through exploring and hands-on experiences. We focus on providing a nurturing and safe environment for children to build friendships and develop language skills.



Our imagineers are our preschoolers, ages 3-4 years old. The goal for this group is too foster a curiosity for learning and developing their social and emotional skills. We have created a curriculum that allows children the flexibility to learn through discovery and experimentation. Our curriculum also encourages children to begin to form a relationship with God by learning about Him through stories, pictures and songs.


Our innovators are our pre-k class, ages 4-5 years old. In this classroom we focus on Kindergarten readiness where children acquire the skills needed to be prepared for their transition to Kindergarten. We will continue to dig deeper into our relationship with God by continuing to offer an engaging faith based curriculum. Your child will graduate from this program with a strong self image and a relationship with God that will lead to excellence in future endeavors.
