Foster your child’s natural curiosity, creativity, and intelligence through:

A Safe Learning Environment – focusing on each child as a unique individual.

A Dual-Language Program – because children who learn more than one language at an early age have increased learning capacity and do better in school long term.

Plenty of Outdoor Play – including gardening, outdoor activities, and a playground that sparks each child’s imagination.

Strong Community Connections – including field trips into the village and bringing folks from the village to the daycare to enrich each child’s learning.
