Our program offers Licensed Group Care and Preschool for children ages three to five years. Both part-time and full time spaces are available in our programs.

Based on a philosophy of “learning through play” our classrooms will provide unique and rich experiences for all children.  Our spacious outdoor playground and nearby beach offer a wonderful opportunity to explore nature just outside our door.

Fully qualified Early Childhood Educators create and provide a variety of activities designed to promote social, emotional, cognitive, physical and creative growth for all age and stages of development in children.

We look forward to sharing this exciting new learning experience with your child.
