Do you serve meals?

Yes, at 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Children bring their own lunch. We also do a lot of cooking with the children. We post pictures on instagram and weekly menus are posted in the classrooms.

How do you handle discipline?

We do not do times outs, we teach conflict resolution skills, and we teach children to communicate about their feelings in a positive way.

What are the fees?

Tuition monthly, once a year registration and once a year fundraising fee. Please reach out to us to learn about our fees.

How do we drop off our child?

We get each child out of your car as you pull up in front. We are in a residential neighborhood and this works best. Plus, it’s easier for you and child to separate this way.

Is the director always available?

Always here via in person, email or phone for you. We also have a school cell phone you can text at any time and we will get right back to you.

How do we enroll?

Open enrollment happens every January for the following school year, and it is on a first come first served basis. We usually fill up by the end of the month, and no one has ever been turned away in this process. Mid year openings are rare, so we do encourage the January.

Is the school year round?

Yes, with the exception we do take off 6 weeks a year: two weeks at winter break, one week spring break, last week of June, first week of August, and one week at Thanksgiving.
