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.
