We are not a center. We are a home daycare with an all day preschool program. We are your like personal nanny service and preschool in one. Get the best of intimate home daycare and preschool together. Your children will not be just a number but part of our family.
HOME DAYCARE for ages 2 and up only. We serve organic non- processed foods.
Montessori/ Waldorf style of teaching.
We only have 6-12 students per day( maximum 12). This allows for better quality socialization and more one on one guidance. We focus on working together as a family and develop personal responsibility as well as accountability in all our students. In a small group, children are thus exposed to less germs and sicknesses. We also diffuse essential oils in the air to kill air born germs and give therapeutic benefits for the children ( ex- peppermint helps to stimulate their brains for times of concentration like center and project time, where lavender calms for quiet times ( story- time, rest time).
We are open for children 8 A.M till 5 P.M. Our preschool program is from 8 A.M-3:30 P.M, and we do before and after school care. We offer occasional evening, weekend and overnight care.

Your child will come home from their " second home" with a love for learning and desire to participate in the adventure of life, hand on!
We work with each child to encourage them to learn at their own pace so they will be prepared for mainstream Kindergarten.
There are different creative play stations set up in various rooms and children are encouraged to roam from learning centers experimenting and engaging on the level that they feel comfortable. We converted our heated garage to a p.e room for gross motor skills and active play during the winter. We fill the garage with a huge bouncy house. Our sun room is used as our block room for spacial relations and math manipulates.
