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 (9 am to noon) and full day (9 am to 3 pm) classes, along with extended day options (as early as 8 am, as late as 6 pm). Full day includes a group lunch (packed lunch brought from home), followed by a nap or rest period, and more play.
