Experienced Teachers Offer Your Child Homework Help

Your child gets assistance with tricky topics and encouragement to stay on track and get their work done. Teachers give them individualized support to get their homework completed, which also frees up family time at the end of the night.

They Feel Seen Among Diverse Teachers & Peers

A diverse before and after-school group helps your child feel respected for their culture and heritage. They spend time with teachers who model ways to show that same respect to others at school and in the community.

Healthy, Delicious, & Complimentary Chef-Made Snacks Every Day

Your child enjoys freshly-made snacks straight from the kitchen of Executive Chef Ryan, who uses ingredients from the garden and other local growers to ensure every bite is healthy, delicious, and allergy-conscious, all at no extra cost to you.

She started at 12mo and has flourished in the classroom. Her teacher is so attentive and fun and charismatic, she has a connection with each kid and she really takes her time with them. Front office staff are knowledgeable and helpful, even for this first time mama who cried after dropping my kid off the first day. 100% recommend this place.

My daughter and her best friend both attended for the 18-19 Pre K year. My daughter had two amazing teachers who my daughter absolutely adored! Not only do I feel that she is now better equipped in her educational preparedness, but also in her social readiness to go to Kindergarten next year. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!

I absolutely love this child care center! I attended when I was a toddler and a young child. Now, my children go there and they love it. The teachers and staff are absolutely amazing, as well as the owner. I have trusted this childcare center with my kids for years as well as my parents trusting it for me when I was younger. I would definitely recommend this childcare center!
