“Children need the freedom and time to play. Play is a necessity.”
– Kay Redfield Jamison

About the program

Our educators prioritize each child’s well-being by supporting their need to express themselves, to receive individual attention, and to belong.

Children are invited to participate in our fun, play-based programs to further develop their growing self-help, self-regulation, and social skills. They enjoy daily outdoor play in all kinds of weather which is important for health and well-being. Kindergarten children tend to be energetic and enjoy recognition. They may talk about having a ‘best friend’ and want to be like their peers.

Parents can expect a flexible group routine with two healthy snacks provided daily. We restrict foods brought from home or restaurants in order to protect the children in our programs with life-threatening allergies. For PA days and summer camp, families must provide lunches that are peanut-free. Other allergens may also be prohibited.
