We provide an educational curriculum to meet the needs of each child and age group and prepare them for school and beyond.

Our approach to teaching through positive reinforcement and redirection. We want to let children know what we "want" from them rather than reminding them of all the "no's" in the world. Children thrive with positive reinforcement and want to learn more then.Our school has been NAC Accredited since July 2016.
