Nursery and Kindergarten

Our Nursery and Kindergarten programs strive to achieve a balance between free play and enrichment activities to encourage independence and the joy in joining together as a group. We encourage natural talents and learning about the world through the gift of imitation, fantasy and invention.

We offer half day (9am to noon) and full day (9am to 3pm) classes, along with extended day options (as early as 8am, as late as 6pm). Full day includes a group lunch (packed lunch brought from home), followed by a nap or rest period, and more play. The afternoon is designed to balance and compliment the morning by providing a home-like atmosphere for a smaller group with more intimate activities.
