Playful Learning

Kindergarteners learn through exploration in a nurturing, arts-focused environment. Our multiage program means that each day Kindergarteners spend time with both their age-mates and older children. Kindergarteners especially love playing with their 3rd Grade Buddies, whether singing, reading, or at all school celebrations.

Kindergarteners begin and end their day in their bright and airy classroom. Between good morning and goodbye, however, our young learners can be found  imagining in the treasure-filled Play Studio, creating in the art studio, skipping to recess at Cowen Park, dancing in the gym, cooking in the kitchen, or even playing Ukulele and marimba in the music room.

We pack an immense amount of fun and adventure, creative expression and learning into each school day! For families looking for before or afterschool care everyday or only on some days, we offer an Extended Day Program.
