Our center provides a well-rounded learning environment for each child. Our teachers make lesson plans that follow themes for each week, which include art, outside time, free time, group time, and circle time, and other  activities.

Each room is full of age- appropriate activities that are fun and engaging. In our rooms, the children are participating in circle time in which they sings songs and practice numbers, colors, shapes, and other learning activities appropriate for their age.

Each classroom goes outside, plays in the room, and does art.
