to learn. The school has up to date safe, manipulative and colorful educational

to join in free play (blocks, puzzles, cars, Lego, etc.), story time,

oral, creative and academic skills.
The curriculum is based on "Themes" of interest to the young
child. These are incorporated into their activities through roll play,
craft, games and paper work.
