Share in the Learning Fun

When they reach three years old, our nursery kids are introduced to language, math concepts and science, and social skills in a natural sequence to nourish learning step by step, with individual attention suited to your child’s unique needs. As they progress with improved coordination and thinking, the world begins to open up for even more discovery.

A Day of Your Preschooler’s Time with Us

Each day at our centers, nursery children create artwork, explore books, learn about the rest of the world, play characters and movement games. In this way they learn following directions and other key skills for learning success.

Purposeful Play Is Early Education

Each day is packed with carefully designed activities structured around the six main development areas. Here are a few example activities:
